Intellectual Property

ǼLEX’s Intellectual Property Practice is recognised as one of the leading IP practices in Nigeria. We offer comprehensive legal services in every aspect of intellectual property law and provide both established and innovative legal methods of protecting clients’ interests. With lawyers having background in scientific disciples, our clients are sure that we are able to understand issues presented by complex technical and financial innovations and to efficiently meet their goals.

The firm handles matters (both of a contentious and non-contentious nature) relating to trademarks, patent, copyright, franchising, licensing, distributorship agreements and technology transfer. We file trademark, patent and design applications in Nigeria and in Ghana directly and in OAPI countries, through an agent. We assist our clients with the registration of their products with the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC).

Our clients range from large multinational corporations who are engaged in telecommunications, oil & gas, biotechnology, software, pharmaceuticals and banking. We help them with their trademarks, patent, copyright, franchising, licensing, distributorship agreements and technology transfer matters. Our firm also offers investigative services to clients whose products are being adulterated and sold locally.
