Founder & CEO
Whether helping his father enforce his copyright or helping you secure your trademarks, Andrei's passion is driven by the fundamental belief that those who create something that hasn't existed before deserve to not have it stolen from them. Business owners deserve not to be ripped off by unscrupulous copycats, pretentious lawyers who only care about covering their asses, or fake-cheap online trademarking services that file your trademark applications for next-to-nothing then leave you out in the cold if something goes wrong.
For Andrei, Trademark Factory® is not just an exciting business opportunity. It's personal.
Director of Delivery / Head of Legal

Cris first joined Trademark Factory® as a Client Success Representative in February 2021. Her tasks ranged from making sure that clients showed up on their appointments to actually scheduling the appointments. While doing so, she was often asked questions about how trademark applications work and that inspired her to move laterally to the paralegal team and learn the end-to-end process.
With her new role, Cris integrates the fun side of sales and customer service with serious paralegal work.
Jeanne has knowledge when it comes to trademarks. She registered several of her former US big and prominent clients to Amazon’s Brand Registry as soon as she received the trademark registration number and other details from the trademark agent. Trademark was vital for her clients in reporting to Amazon all the unauthorized resellers/distributors who were using her clients’ brands and marks thus, they were also stealing sales from her clients and were causing their Buybox to go lower.
Jeanne was also a paralegal / legal assistant in a family law firm in Illinois that deals with a lot of divorce and child custody cases.
Being in eBay and Amazon virtual / e-commerce world since 2018, she decided to try the legal industry considering her Bachelor’s degree was a Pre-Law and she’s also a Licensed Customs Broker in the Philippines.
I testified in court for a hit and run case in 2010-2011 (I was the only witness of the crime), and it was so nerve-wracking for me to take the stand but all of these feelings and hassles going to court paid off when we won the case (I never asked for any remuneration in return). I became friends with the victim and still have contact with her until now.
Bonus: I love lipsticks! I currently own 44 different lipsticks :D (I gave out my other lipsticks, and threw away the expired ones).
Before joining Trademark Factory® as a paralegal, Mckoi was a legal assistant with one of the Philippine government agencies. He left the office job and chose to advance his legal practice working from home to support his nocturnal lifestyle and help his wife take care of the kids.
