Trademark and Intellectual Property Services

The intellectual property (IP) associated with a business name or system can be one of its most valuable assets – but only if it is properly protected. Any business that wishes to establish a national or international identity should take steps to protect the use of its name, logo or other IP, such as patent rights, formulae/processes, designs, trademarks, franchises, licence agreements, ‘know-how’ and copyrights.
In South Africa, trademarks, copyrights, designs and patents should be registered with the Companies and Intellectual Property Commission (CIPC). Sovereign can provide cost effective advice to clients on the acquisition, exploitation, use and enforcement of IP rights on both a domestic and cross-border basis. We can also provide strategic advice to both established and developing companies.
