Intellectual Property Law

The Trade Mark Department is based at our office in Nairobi, where the Trade Marks and Copyright Offices are also situated. The department also practices, for the convenience of our clients and correspondents, from our offices in Mombasa. The Trade Mark Department currently has a professional staff complement of partners, associates, professional assistants, pupils and paralegals. The partners, associates and professionals are all qualified Lawyers and most of them are also qualified trade mark practitioners and Registered Patent Agents.

Intellectual property rights are a global trend, which is imbued in a vortex of technology changes based on globalization. The effects of international trade, globalization, stiff business competition; international economics have necessitated this trend. Our firm has invested heavily in this area both academic, equipments and personnel as the future of our core Business. As a commercial enterprise your brands are your integral assets and should be safeguarded jealously With the Local and International entrepreneurial spirit spreading like the bush fire, predators of intellectual properties are on the loose with the intention of riding on other investors brands of products, which has been developed over a long period of time and at great expense.

As a result we have placed ourselves strategically to service in this area. We do prosecute registration of trademarks, patents and copying rights for local and international clients. We do also acquire licenses and assignment on behalf of the patent holders. We are also well placed to defend and prosecute infringement of intellectual property rights. As an area which most commercial enterprises are taking very seriously we like to sit with our client for them to give us their corporate directions. From these we are able to advise them on the extent of their rights and obligations to protection of their innovation and brand of products

Debt Collection

Debt collection is an area of particular concern in the business world. In view of constraints in the court system, we have set up a debt collection unit, which supplements and complements our court action against debtors. Our focus is also in collecting judgments and delinquent accounts receivable through a personal, open and ethical approach which results in fast turnaround and sustainable returns, improving your bottom line. The debt collection unit is made up of debt collectors and investigators whose primary role is to pursue debtors aggressively.

From our experience a sizeable number of debtors respond and pay if sufficiently pressured. Aggressive here means firm and persistent, but always polite. The unit is deployed prior to filing suit.In the course of their work the investigators trace debtors, their assets and establish their financial standing. With this information ‘hopeless’ debts can be identified early and cost saving decisions made. The unit has proved particularly effective in the recovery of credit cards debts, one of the problematic debts.
