Our intellectual and industrial property practice encompasses the following:

  1. Patent, trademark litigation and unfair competition.
  2. Licensing, promotion and execution of  projects
  3. Filing applications and providing services, including consultation and management and protection, for domestic and overseas patents, trade-marks and copyrights.
  4. Dealing with official actions such as lodging amendments, arranging searches and litigation with respect to opposition, invalidation, cancellation and compulsory licensing proceedings.
  5. Administrative appeals and proceedings.
  6. Legal opinions on patent and trademark validity.
  7. Registration of certain goods and products with NAFDAC (Nigerian Agency for Food & Drug Administration and Control) and / or with SON (Standard Organization of Nigeria).

With the increase in the faking/imitation of goods, both worldwide and in Nigeria, and the advent of more open market competition, we are experiencing continual growth in this area of practice.
The Firm are particularly well versed in the law, and practical aspects, of registering Trademark Agreements, Technical & Management Services Agreements and the like, with the National Office for Technology Acquisition and Promotion ("NOTAP") and other relevant Government agencies, in order to facilitate the remittance of such fees to overseas principals.
