Lime One Ltd. Represents 300 U.K. Clients Against Getty

I was informed by a letter recipient that she is using Lime One, a U.K.-based Law firm, to represent her. The article "Is a picture really worth £1,000?" by The Guardian states that Lime One now represents over 300 clients against Getty Images and not none of those clients have ever been taken to court.

I have no direct relationship with Lime One Ltd. as I do with Attorney Oscar Michelen. And so I cannot comment as to the qualifications or the service of Lime One. However, this piece of information is something we have been seeking for our U.K. readers.

I never heard back from Lime One after reaching out to them twice to try and coordinate something with them

Oscar is absolutely right. I was supposedly contacted by the CEO of Lime One. I returned the call, left a message, and even an email. There has been silence ever since.  Very strange.  I am guessing they like to engage in stealth publicity.

Its frustrating I agree, try to find an IP lawyer near you that provides a free consultation to let you know where you stand.
