Operating from offices in Technopark, the heart of South African innovation, we are deal makers focused on advising innovative businesses at each stage of their maturity.

Our slogan "from IP to IPO" describes the exciting journey from the inception and protection of an idea (intellectual property) to creating stakeholder value through potentially global commercialisation, which may include public investment into the equity of a venture (initial public offering).

While we have thousands of intellectual property registrations under management in various parts of the world, the successful protection of intellectual property - although integral - is not the endgame for us, but one cornerstone in facilitating commercial success.

Particular areas of focus include:
  • corporate and commercial transactions
  • private equity, funding and shareholder relationships
  • registration and protection of intellectual property
  • licence agreements
  • technology agreements
  • privacy and data
  • bespoke escrow services
