Direct links

Direct links with a number of registries enable us to offer an efficient and competitive trademark, patent and design registration service. Through an exclusive association with Ekeme Lysaght in the Cameroon, we have built up a substantial OAPI practice and we are able to provide a comprehensive and reliable registration service in this area. We have a similar arrangement in Madagascar, and close links have been established with the Industrial Property Office which came into operation in 1994.

Filing formalities

Our trademark and patent registration consultants have access to in-house information systems which incorporate up-to-date information and know-how gained through years of experience, enabling us to provide our clients with reliable information on the intellectual property practices and procedures followed in the jurisdictions in which we operate, as well as the documents required and the costs and timescales involved to obtain trademark, design and patent registration.
