Banwo & Ighodalo’s ("B&I") Intellectual Property and Technology practice group (IPTG) is one of the firm’s 5 specialised units. The IPTG covers core industrial property (trademarks, patents and designs) and copyright; anti-counterfeiting and anti-piracy; information technology law, privacy, advertising law, media and entertainment law.

We work with clients to secure and maintain effective protection for their brands, intangible assets, concepts, and technical know-how. We take pride in delivering excellent work within a short turnaround time, in line with best practices obtainable across the world. Our well-trained team is responsive and resourceful. Not only are we well-versed in the law and procedure, we are creative in coming up with useful, practical solutions to our client’s problems.

We are active members of the International Trademark Association (INTA), the International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property (AIPPI), Pharmaceutical Trade Marks Group (PTMG) and the Chartered Institute of Trade Mark Attorneys and these memberships ensure that we stay abreast of global best practices and developments in IP. In addition, through collaboration with a strong network of associates and colleagues in other regions including OAPI and ARIPO, we harmonise our clients’ intellectual property strategies across different jurisdictions.
