Company Profile:

A Wealth of International Experience

We have a wealth of intellectual property knowledge, specialising in the Caribbean, Central and Latin America and offshore jurisdictions. Our broad perspective, practical approach and wealth of international experience allow us to offer unique insight into intellectual property issues globally.

Based in the Cayman Islands and supported by HSM Chambers, our experienced team of attorneys and paralegals deliver first class service to a broad client base which includes major Fortune Global 500 brand owners, international law firms and other specialist IP practices. We have substantial experience in taking action to address the infringement of trade marks and patents and in the conduct of passing-off actions. We are also able to offer investigative services to identify the source of, and distributors of, infringing goods, working closely with police and customs officials as necessary.

The success and growth of our firm are due to our keen understanding of our clients’ need for a comprehensive ‘one-stop shop’ which encompasses a wide range of services, from initial consultation to searches, registrations, annuity payments and monitoring and renewals. Our interactive database helps us to proactively manage each client’s portfolio efficiently and cost effectively in an environmentally friendly and substantially paperless workplace. It also allows us to fulfil specific reporting and invoicing requirements, including multi-currency invoicing and e-billing. We offer a competitive schedule of fixed fees, inclusive of both disbursements and official fees, which means we can provide clients with an accurate estimate of their project costs before embarking on a global filing programme for their portfolio.
