“From day one, I have found Kellie to be attentive to my inquiries and requests. She has demonstrated an international industry knowledge that has always put me at ease. When you are building a new business and you are relying on input from an area that is foreign to your own knowledge base, you need to feel comfortable that you are getting the best advice based on world best practice. … I am very comfortable with acting on Kellie’s advice and could not recommend her or MB IP more highly to a prospective client.” (Charlie, Local Client)
“Kellie Jukkola was at all times professional, timely, responsive, skilled and effective. She demonstrated integrity and honesty which is highly valued in all instances but especially when dealing with international matters on short notice with attorneys we have not previously known”.
