  5. MOROCCO (April 2018)

Published Date: April 29, 2018

Representatives from Adams & Adams, Simon Brown, Nicky Garnett and Dieter Welthagen travelled to Casablanca to visit our Associate Office, as well as the Office Marocain de la Propriete Industrielle et Commerciale (OMPIC). This was our first visit to Morocco since our Associate Office in Morocco  was opened in 2017. We met with Mr Adil El Maliki , the Director General of OMPIC and were warmly received. OMIC receives around 50000 trademark applications and 2000 patent applications annually. The Director General is passionate about encouraging local innovators and entrepreneurs to use IP as a tool for economic growth and we were incited to Participate in Casablanca IP Week later this year.  We were given a tour of the Offices and had a chance to meet with engage with some of the Registry Officials on various matters of mutual interest including Madrid applications and issues relating to examination of patent applications in Morocco.
