TRUST US TO PROTECT IT.

ABOUT US

We are a boutique intellectual property (IP) firm established by Karel Bredenkamp, a patent attorney with some 27 years’ experience, in 2012.

We strive to get to know our clients’ businesses to enable us to properly advise and assist them on all matters related to IP, from developing IP strategies up to registering, commercializing, enforcing and managing their IP.

Our professionals have substantial experience in the following fields: patents, registered designs, trademarks, copyright, unlawful competition, restraints of trade, trade secrets, commercialisation of IP, contract law including IP research and development, technology, IP transfer and licensing of IP and IP and related litigation.

We prosecute patent, registered design and trademark applications worldwide.

Litigation services range from enforcing IP rights, defending IP infringement actions or applications to contractual, licensing and unlawful competition disputes.  We have extensive experience in obtaining and defending Anton Piller orders.

We assist start-ups (from new micro enterprises all the way to new ventures within global corporates) with structuring (partnerships, joint ventures, cooperation agreements, setting up companies and the like), memorandums of incorporation, shareholder agreements, restraints of trade, non-disclosure agreements (with specific IP provisions) and funding, development, licensing, distribution, marketing and the like agreements. This is an especially rewarding part of our business.
