Intellectual Property: Protecting Your Intangible Assets & Data

The management and protection of our clients’ intellectual property and data is integral to their business. We work closely with our clients to develop their intellectual property strategies and protect the integrity of their brands in multiple jurisdictions as they seek to distinguish themselves from the market players in this completive sector.

Our clients include technology companies as well as food and beverage companies and consumer care brands whom we have advised on IP protection through the registration of IP rights in multiple jurisdictions in collaboration with local counsel in Africa, North America, Europe and China.

The Firm advises on and coordinates the registration of affected clients with the office of the Data Protection Commissioner and prepares the necessary Data Protection, management and retention policies in compliance with applicable law.

Recent assignments have included registration of trademarks locally and internationally as well as investigating, advising on and defending potential trademark and patent infringement on behalf of local and multinational clients operating in sub-Saharan Africa.
