'I was given RT Coopers name by a company of solicitors I had approached with a particular view to helping us out with regards to some patent research.  The matter was handled quickly and very efficiently and I was always clear on the costs and timings involved.  This was a big plus for us as a small independent ideas development company and I would certainly be happy to use RT Coopers again for any patent related work and am most happy to recommend their efficient, clear service.' John Moulder, Managing Director, Fernleigh Books
