IP Disputes

​​​​​​​​IP disputes can threaten both your brand and your bottom line. Effectively resolving and preventing IP disputes requires an experienced adviser, who has an understanding of the current and future value of your assets, and who will skilfully protect your rights.

We advise our clients on disputes relating to patents, trade marks, copyrights, trade secrets and other IP rights, in a range of dispute resolution proceedings, including litigation, arbitration and mediation. We also have extensive experience in advising on contractual disputes relating to IP.

We assist clients by providing opinions on validity, infringement and freedom to operate in light of existing IP rights. We always seek to structure our advice to avoid future disputes, taking account of applicable law and rules arising from international trade agreements.

We provide a co-ordinated approach to cross-border IP disputes, working with our relationship firms across Africa and beyond, as well as our alliance partner, Linklaters.
