Intellectual Property

Our lawyers are at the forefront of Intellectual Property (IP) protection. Elesinmogun & Egwuatu's international experience is an advantage in the import/export of products into the Nigerian market. We work with the agencies like Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) and National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) who are in charge of all importation and exportation of both consumable and non-consumable goods. This makes us a leading IP practice in the Nigerian market. We can be trusted to handle the IP portfolios of multi-national companies that intend to successfully enter and function in the Nigerian market. A key strength of our practice is our presence in both the Nigerian and US market. We understand the culture and politics of the different jurisdictions. We handle: trademarks, patents & designs, products registration, copyrights and registration of domain names.

The practice group understands the issues relating to protection of Intellectual property rights. The advent of the internet, technology break through and sophisticated counterfeiting practices has expanded the risks for IP holders. At E and E we are constantly training, advising and updating our clients on new challenges in IP protection.
