The official fees for patent, design and trade mark matters in Nigeria are to be increased with effect from 1 September 2010.

In most instances, the new fees will be approximately 100% higher than the current fees. In view of this, we would recommend that you send us any instructions for filing, prosecuting or renewing your IP matters in Nigeria as soon as possible, so that we may take advantage of the current, lower official fees.

We look forward to assisting you in any such work in the near future.
