Africa is our heritage and focus. Navigating the different laws and practices in each of the 59 countries and surrounding islands is challenging. Companies, law firms and inventors from around the world, and locally in Africa, rely on our deep knowledge, expertise and experience to protect their intellectual property (IP) across the continent. We offer the same services across the Caribbean. Relationships formed over many years with local associates and intellectual property (IP) offices provide a strong network and insight into the local cultures and ways of working. We also work with local African companies concerning their intellectual property (IP) interests in other countries.
