    Featured as a recommended individual (who are spotlighted in the publication for their ‘exceptional skill sets and profound insights’), Stratford Intellectual Property President Natalie Giroux “comes highly recommended by those who have worked with her.”  When speaking about her expertise, the directory quoted a client, “Natalie is the only practitioner I trust to propose a strategy that actually matches our corporate reality. I believe her to be a very pragmatic person who can clearly explain the pros and cons of various IP strategies. Whenever someone asks me for an excellent service provider in the field, I always recommend Natalie.”

    At Stratford, Natalie leads a team of like-minded individuals, who have become well-regarded as experts in IP strategy. Together they have helped over 100 companies and individuals realize and maximize their IP goals and strategies.

He knows how to write patents and how to avoid common pitfalls.”
