Intellectual property

The entry of multiple brands into the region has made the ability to register and protect the rights that investors and clients  obtain in their products, services and brands an essential success component in the business environment.

Securing a knowledgeable and experienced legal adviser who understands the local complexities with the appropriate track record in navigating the legal landscape is pivotal to this success.

We advise on the registration of trademarks, patents, industrial designs, assignments and registered user agreements (licenses) for numerous multinational and local clients. We also represent clients in opposition proceedings and IP-related litigation. We pride ourselves in blending experience with dynamism and as such have employed some of the most enthusiastic, pragmatic and intelligent lawyers to meet the varied needs of our clients.
