Company profile:

Spoor & Fisher is a full service intellectual property law firm with an international footprint and a well developed network of local practitioners providing services throughout Africa, the Middle East and the Caribbean. Thanks to its large, diverse and highly skilled team, Spoor & Fisher is strategically positioned to assist clients in obtaining and enforcing intellectual property rights throughout the world.

Since its foundation in 1920, Spoor & Fisher has evolved from a practice focused on the filing and prosecution of patents and trade marks into an internationally respected intellectual property firm.

Spoor & Fisher has always maintained the highest standards of integrity and professionalism in all its dealings but has never allowed itself to fall into a rut in its approach to evolution and revolutions in law, business and technology. The mould has been discarded – and solutions are found through innovation based on constantly updated knowledge, mental agility and problem solving, backed by sophisticated support systems.

The firm’s main offices are situated in South Africa.
