Intellectual Property (IP) entails several categories that operate separately or intertwining with others. We provide both contractual, registration, and dispute resolutions services on matters touching on IP. We have an impressive record in advising and defending clients on the following:
Image Rights: we have assisted various clients on settlements that touch in their image and likeness. In most instances, the client does not have the copyright to a photo, but that person’s image and likeness can only be utilized upon the person issues consent for that image to be used in a defined manner.
We also have ongoing cases before the courts that touch on image rights, which blends with other factors like privacy and data rights.
Copyright (intellectual property): we provide guidance and registration services on matters touching various types of copyright that an individual is interested in protecting. We have represented one of the biggest insurance entities in Kenya on a copyright breach worth US$1.46M.
Patent legal services: we provide patent (intellectual property) search services, monitoring, and registration services. The service extends to analyzing content concerning plant-based patents and providing the needed regulatory requirements.
Trademark legal services: we advised and assisted a US-based client in drafting the necessary defense to file before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (the United States Patent and Trademark Office), which resulted in a win.
We have secured incredible settlements for clients who were said to be offering counterfeit products on some of the top eCommerce platforms in the world. We presented various defenses that allowed the parties to reach a reasonable conclusion and stalled any future or possible suit or prosecution against our Clients.
Domain & Trademark: we have secured various rights for clients who brand companies-initiated processes to unlawfully take the domain names that some of our Clients had already registered and use in various business ventures. Trademark & Domain disputes are addressed expeditiously through reserved forums like World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO), ADR Forum, and Czech Alternative Dispute Resolution.
Trademark Watchdog Services: we provide extensive services to owners of trademarks in Kenya by monitoring any possibility of infringement of their trademark and generating monthly status reports.
