We are pleased to bring you the first section of the 2020 issue of the Adams & Adams Africa Update.
While the far-reaching effects of the global Covid-19 pandemic on Africa’s economy will be difficult to predict, we believe that our continent will recover and remain increasingly relevant on the world stage.
As always, the Africa Update provides a concise summary of all notable legal, IP and economic developments across Africa, as well as a report of our own activities and involvement in the continent’s jurisdictions over the past year. We as a firm continue to assist the development of IP laws in Africa and support governments, the relevant ministries, as well as the Registries, by providing input on procedures, while working closely with our African partners.
We also remain committed to providing all relevant stakeholders with topical, reliable and insightful information related to our great continent through Adams.Africa Advisory. Over the last year of its operation, the Adams.Africa Advisory has made strategic information available to our clients, enabling them to better direct their business strategies in Africa.
As the 2020 edition of the African Update is rather extensive, we have decided to break the magazine down into bite size chunks articles which we will be sending over the course of the next few months. Please be on the lookout for these mailers from Adams & Adams
We trust that you find value in the 2020 Africa Update and that it arms you with additional data to facilitate informed brand and IP Strategies strategies on the African continent. Please continue to support your colleagues and clients as we navigate this challenging environment together.
We wish you and your family health and safety during this time.
