With the emergence of the internet and advanced technology, intellectual property owners are increasingly at risk. Protection of original ideas is therefore essential for the development of every sustainable enterprise. Through our understanding of the culture and legislation of various jurisdictions, we have carved a niche in Intellectual property practice in the Nigerian market. We are constantly advising our clients on product development, data base protection, licensing, franchising, entertainment law, distributorship, passing off & seizure, copyright & design, acquisition& transfer of technology, trademark enforcement and product registration with necessary regulatory bodies.
The team’s strength lies in steep knowledge of the IP terrain, often combining it with related sectors of the Nigerian economy (health and manufacturing) and the excellent working relationship with the National Agency for Food and Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC) and other relevant agencies to curtail the activities of infracting parties.
We also proffer advise on IP contracts, Non disclosure agreements, royalties, joint ventures and due diligence.
