What Our Previous Clients Said About Us

Client Reviews

“The team at Rouse Lawyers has been fantastic.”

The team at Rouse Lawyers has been fantastic. As a new technology startup, we had some unique requirements around licensing
and partner agreements, trademarking as well as off-shore contractor agreements. Matthew and Patrick have been great to deal
with – not only from an advice perspective but also delivering these agreements in a timely manner. Dealing with Rouse Lawyers
has allowed us to concentrate on our business knowing the legal side is in good hands.

“We consider Rouse part of our team, and highly recommend them”

“Given the nature and size of our clients, we are constantly dealing with the big end of town when it comes to law firms.
Matthew’s strategic advice has been utilised in negotiating software development agreements for our 3D interactive rendering
engine, structuring our IP, employment matters, recoveries and corporate advice. We consider Rouse part of our team, and
highly recommend them as a commercial law firm.”
