At Spoor & Fisher, we use the power of our intellectual property expertise and authentic business insight to help our clients to protect, manage and enforce valuable IP rights.
Our practice area teams specialise in trade marks, patents, copyright, registered designs, anti-counterfeiting, domain names, plant breeders’ rights, utility models, SMME support, consumer and advertising matters, commercial IP, and all related litigation.
Over 100 years, we have grown into Africa’s largest specialised IP law firm, with local roots and global reach, known for creating and implementing robust IP protection strategies.
We work hand-in-hand with clients – global companies, universities and SMMEs – and collaborate with legal advisors, agents, and inventors with an interest in Africa and the Caribbean.
We are proud to employ the field’s top thinkers and practitioners, across a broad footprint of offices that extends from Pretoria, Johannesburg and Cape Town to Jersey, with a number of associated offices throughout the continent. This is just one of the reasons that our firm is known for African expertise blended with rich cultural and social diversity.
We value exploration, and yet we never forget to keep our feet on the ground, because this is the soundest base for helping clients to navigate complex legal landscapes.
