Our Philosophy

Just Africa – we do not pretend to cover the world. Instead we focus on Africa

One Stop Solution for Managing your IP in Africa

Many multinational companies and large law firms view Africa from a regional perspective as a whole and require IP protection in several African key jurisdictions simultaneously. IPvocate Africa is able to offer a one stop shop solution for IP protection in Africa. We streamline the process for our clients, allowing a single point of contact. This is why our clients use our services on a regional basis to handle their work across Africa. We are privileged to accompany the initial stages of clients’ projects and inventions as they unfold in Africa. We assist clients in defending their assets and their markets against unfair competitors, imitators and counterfeiters throughout Africa. The African continent is one of the most thriving and dynamic places in the world, but also bears a lot of challenges.
