I had the opportunity to work with Gurpreet Singh when I was an attorney in the patent department - we spent several months reviewing the cost-effectiveness of numerous overseas patent law firms, with the goal of selecting a few firms to handle a sizable portion of patent portfolio.
I therefore had numerous opportunities to appreciate Gurpreet's high level of professionalism and dedication.
quickly achieved a very good understanding of the process involved in obtaining a patent - this enabled him to ask relevant, detailed questions to the foreign patent attorneys vying for business, and to quickly weed out many candidates who did not meet the expected standards.
also proved to be a very effective negotiator - when the time came to reach a deal with the firms we selected, he
was successful in obtaining significant discounts over the firms' normal price for many of their services.
Gurpreet's rapid grasp of the issues involved, his
promptness in answering my various requests, and his
availability at all times made him a real pleasure to work with.
I am convinced that any attorney would find him to be a real asset in any sourcing project, and I therefore recommend him very highly.
