I was supported by Tom Justice throughout the drafting and finalising of my licence agreement. At all times, he was consistent, calm, and pragmatic, deftly anticipating how the licensee might interpret our words, and being careful not to antagonise, something that was particularly important to me as I wanted the licensor/licensee relationship to be a positive one. I wholeheartedly recommend Muckle and Tom Justice; they made what could have been a challenging journey enjoyable, enabling both parties to be happy with the final agreement.
