Bredenkamp IP serves as a hub for, or gateway to, Africa.  Many of our non-African based clients prefer one point of contact for all matters on the African continent.  Of course, our experience in serving as a gateway to Africa, is equally advantageous to our African based clients.

We have an experienced team to assist with the prosecution of patent, trademark and registered design applications throughout Africa. We also assist with and manage enforcement of IP in Africa.

Africa has two regional bodies in which to file patent, trademark and registered design applications; namely OAPI and ARIPO. South Africa and Nigeria (and some other states) have individual patent offices and are not part of these regional organisations.
