Enough from us, what do our client's think... was referred to us by our corporate solicitor. carried out the engagement with skill and care, ensuring a successful outcome.  Their approach was professional, in that we were provided with a detailed breakdown of work to be undertaken, together with an estimate of fees.  The work was completed, and the fees charged in accordance with the terms of engagement.  We were kept informed of progress throughout and all matters were followed up diligently and concluded successfully.

Andrew McLeod – CEO, Douglas Nutrition (Nico) has done a number of different jobs for us over the past year and half, from registering trade marks to international contracts with our distributors. From day one I was impressed with his efficiency to get jobs done fast and thorough. As a young entrepreneur it has been a real learning experience dealing with Nico, not only has he provided me with a good service, but along the way he has taught me the basic fundamentals of why it’s important to protect your intellectual property, whether it is a company logo or a branded product for export. is a fresh, innovative company that has always provided us with a high level of professionalism. Even though we are a relatively small business we are always provided with a fast efficient service. 


Robert Reid – Director, Global Innovations


We have worked with Nico at on various trade mark and contract matters since the firm’s formation almost.  We followed Nico from a previous firm, where we had worked with him for a couple of years.  The change has been positive.  We have noticed a reduction in fees, while still maintaining a high level of professionalism and attentiveness.  Nico always makes time to discuss things, and is quick to get back to us.  We have developed a close working relationship over the years and I would not hesitate to recommend Nico and to others.

Nico and his expertise has been a huge help to us as a growing business. has assisted EXFIRE in trade mark applications, contract negotiation and general legal advice as our coating solutions company has grown over the past 2 years. Nico has an exceptional ability to clarify situations and requirements into an easy to understand straight to the point approach. The ability to quickly grasp situations and help tailor solutions and documentation to very specific requirements at realistic prices has been of great value to our new business.

Nico was incredibly responsive to my situation and worked a great result while communicating clearly about expectations and outcomes at every point of the process. I could not recommend a better company to work with than TheLoft.Legal . Legal matters are often fraught with distrust of all parties, however Nico did a great job of disarming a potentially worrisome position and achieving a great compromise.


Steve Hussey – Director, Thadeus


Found Nico to be incredibly helpful for an area of law (trade marks) that we had no ideas about - reducing our stress levels considerably over a legal challenge to our business.  Provided prompt and very comprehensive information required to defend our trade marks.  Was excellent to have Nico provide costings in advance that were honoured - such a bonus for small business operators!

I have been very happy to use The Loft.  Nico was recommended to me from two sources and I am glad they did.  Nico is fast to respond, detailed in his answers and very knowledgeable.  Nico asked the right questions in order to give me the correct outcomes. He also looked at the bigger picture from our IP point of view and suggested where we could improve. His summaries of what has been done and what we are waiting on are a great way to know where we are at in the process.


Simon Oldham – General Manager, QJumpers


We have really enjoyed working with Nico since our first conversation. At the outset Nico provided us with an overview of common legal situations that may arise when carrying out work of our nature and what the default legal positions would be under various circumstances. Since then Nico has advised us on a number of ventures and taken an active interest in our work beyond the legal considerations. We always appreciate Nico's fast responses to our enquiries (even after hours/weekends) even if it is just to say that he has received our message and will respond shortly. Working with Nico we have peace of mind that we are proceeding in the correct manner when conducting our business.


Lewis Anderson – Director, SOLVEDIT


We very much appreciated Nico’s no nonsense, straight forward advice in relation to our IP requirements. With multiple companies across various industries, we felt very comfortable with Nico’s level of expertise guiding our decisions. Nico was thorough and practical in his advice.


Cate Carroll - Communications Manager, Gulvin Group


Fast service and clear understanding of what was expected in the process. Expectations set out upfront


James Fitzgerald – Director, Skyfly


I have found Nico to be a very kind and generous in our dealings. And helpful with your knowledge of the problems we have to deal with.




Nico was quick to get an understanding of the issues we were discussing and what I was trying to achieve . He managed to nail it almost all on the first draft , that’s not so common with lawyers.




Nico was great, other law firms don’t advice on the description of the Trademark, and just proceed to file without analysing best strategy for the client
