Africa is a continent like no other and requires a different skill set and understanding. It runs on its own timeframe and in its own way and having an experienced legal partner is key to successfully doing business on this complex yet exciting continent that is filled with opportunity.

Considering that there are 58 countries in Africa, with a population of approximately 800 million, it is no surprise that the region has become a focal point for commercial expansion. At the same time, each country has its own set of intellectual property laws, with their own respective origins.

KISCH IP has developed – over the last 147 years – extensive knowledge and experience of the various legal systems and structures throughout Africa.

Further, because we view Africa as a reservoir of immense potential for global businesses and investors, we are eager to assist foreign and local clients with IP-related matters throughout the continent, as well as with general commercial legal services.
