The Patents Department must stay abreast with continuous technical development and has evolved to a point where it is well able to handle any matter in virtually every technical discipline that may come its way. The department handles not only the drafting and analysis of patent specifications but also the processing of incoming patent applications to be filed in South Africa and neighbouring countries and the filing and prosecuting of patent applications through foreign associates in every country of the world.
Our patent practice is divided into areas of specialisation according to scientific and engineering disciplines. We have separate teams focusing on:
Biotechnology and life sciencesChemistry and chemical engineeringMechanical, civil and mining engineeringElectrical, electronics and software engineeringNanotechnology
Each of these groups comprises professionals with the appropriate scientific and engineering qualifications, together with legal qualifications and experience.
