Companies’ rights must be enforced
property matters with minimal effort and no undue delays.
From an intellectual property perspective clients seeking to do business on the African continent can rely on their trusted adviser in the form of a leading South African legal firm having an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the laws, practices, customs and procedures in each region, as opposed to having to seek and develop a new advisory relationship in each territory.
It should be borne in mind that Africa is expected to continue enjoying substantial economic growth and increased economic activity, and as such obtaining intellectual property protection and maintaining and enforcing these rights should be at the top of any checklist of a company seeking to obtain a dominant position in today’s global economy. This is where South African law firms have a key role to play and are coming into their own quite remarkably.
