Access: Insights Series

​​​​​​​​​​​To mark the culmination of the most recent topic of focus between Africa Legal and Webber Wentzel, we are proud to present a downloadable compilation of content focused on ‘access’ to new markets, sectors and technology.

Insights include:

Protecting Innovation, Protecting Business – Leading intellectual property lawyer Bernadette Versfeld reveals that far too many businesses treat IP protection as a mere afterthought or implement it in a vacuum, rather than prioritising their IP as a vital part of their overall business strategy. Failure to deploy an IP strategy could compromise your comparative advantage and result in litigation costs.

Balancing Rights in a Global Pandemic – Constitutional law expert Michael Evans explores the varying approaches taken in relation to vaccine mandates across the continent and how individual rights may be impacted on by policies designed to protect public health.

Access to Banking and Insurance in Africa and the Role of Technology – Africa may be the most underbanked continent in the world, but access to financial markets is gaining momentum, thus presenting a myriad of opportunities – and risks.​​​​​​

You’ll also discover the results of our “Big Question” online poll which asked what users would consider to be the most important aspect of financial regulation – protection of financial assets, simplicity of rules, or protection of data.​​​​​
