Troy Groberg
We hired Davids firm to help us fill a hole that we had previously struggled to deal with effectively. That being domain abuse and International domain squatting. David and his team were able to deliver and save us money at the same time. One domain that we had struggled with for over two years was turned over to us within 3 weeks of putting David on the case. David's commitment to integrity was something that really stood out in the industry. That's what sold me. And I didn't regret it once. If ever in a similar need again I would gladly hire David and his team again.

When it comes to dealing with online marketplaces that pillage manufactures today, David is definitely an expert in this area. He has the uncanny ability to identify a problem before it becomes damaging to the brand and knows how to solve these complex problems with creative enforcement solutions. David has worked diligently to successfully build rapport within a difficult industry; this has given him the extraordinary resources and knowledge to solve just about any clients’ issues.

You only need to read David's profile and other recommendations to understand his expertise in brand protection. Instead of echoing others, I'll point out his deep understanding of emerging technology, which gives him a unique perspective on the "art of the possible" in digital marketplaces. As a technology product manager it was a pleasure to work with someone that not only understood the domain, but understood how solutions should work for customers. That information was invaluable to me, and would be to any company looking to innovate solving the complex problems in the digital world.

On those rare occasions when he may not have the information, 30 minutes and a few well-placed calls always yielded the results I needed; and, for the nature of the financial decisions we needed to make, David's insights saved us months of research, time and above all, considerable money.
