PROJECT OVERVIEW

The Company is a Boutique Law Firm in the broadest sense of the word. They specialise in providing Advisory and Consulting Services on Intellectual Property- and ICT Law to the SME market. As a start-up organisation, obtaining a permanent place in the Legal Industry is their primary goal. Entrepreneurs are the backbone of any economy. Entrepreneurs with new innovative products and solutions always look to protect their innovations, product names, and even trade via e-commerce whilst adhering to international regulations and best practices. But, new companies and entrepreneurs do not always have the financial means to afford the fees of large, multinational lawyers. Moreover, legal advice and consultation on Intellectual Property Laws, ICT Regulations and related subject matters are not always easily accessible by entrepreneurs. Having access to reliable, timely, and cost-effective advice is of utmost importance to SMEs and entrepreneurs. The Company is a newly established, full-service Intellectual Property- and ICT Boutique Law Firm. As a 100% Black-Owned Organisation, the Founder has extensive experience in the fields of Intellectual Property, Patents, and related matters. This experience is further complemented by 15 years’ IT experience in the Financial Services Sector with specialisation in Financial Crime Control.
