Profile

Adams & Adams is an internationally recognised and leading African law firm that specialises in providing intellectual property and commercial services throughout Africa.

With primary office locations in South Africa, and associate offices in a number of African countries, our leadership position as one of the largest intellectual property law practice in the southern hemisphere, and as one of South Africa’s foremost corporate, property and commercial law firms, is reflected in the ground-breaking work we do and the valuable client relationships we have with many of the world’s largest corporations and organisations, as well as small to medium-sized companies.

Our 68 partners are established pathfinders and thought leaders in their respective practice areas.

Our Intellectual Property law practices work with clients around the globe and across many industries to protect, enforce and commercialise their intellectual property. The group offers clients a full range of legal services relating to the acquisition, enforcement, and commercialisation of intellectual property rights. These services include counsel and handling of transactions in cases involving patents, copyrights, trademarks, designs, licensing, and data security. The partners and associates in our Intellectual Property Group also litigate these issues in courts globally.
