Rhino Rugby

Brand protection and portfolio management for leading sports manufacturer, Rhino Rugby.

“Rhino Rugby has been pleased to work with Sandersons since the current management took over the business – we were recommended to the firm by Gordons Solicitors who handle our general legal work.

We have subsequently pursued an active programme of trademark and IP registration in many parts of the world and worked successfully with James Sanderson to extend our coverage in this respect and resolve a number of issues which have arisen in the process. We are happy with the straightforward and workmanlike approach of Sandersons in dealing with our needs efficiently and without unnecessary fuss.”
