She is “extremely proactive and cost-conscious” and “She consistently distinguishes herself from other outside counsel because of her exceptional quality work.” Managing Intellectual Property (MIP) also notes that Charlotte is "creative and insightful", according to a client, who adds that "She consistently delivers results and is one of our strongest counsel outside the US".
