What we do
Corporate & Commercial
Litigation & Dispute Resolution
G. Elias & Co. have extensive experience in various aspects of intellectual property work and have represented numerous local and international clients in prosecuting their intellectual property rights within and outside Nigeria. We advise our clients on commercialization of their intellectual property assets through the franchising, licensing and assignment of those assets, and on intellectual property issues arising in the course of mergers, acquisitions and corporate re-organizations. We have also assisted our clients in procuring the registration of their trademarks, patents and designs. We also handle matters arising after registration such as assignments, renewals, changes of name, changes of address and licensing of copyrights, trademarks, patents and designs. We conduct “due diligence” inquiries on the title to and registration of intellectual property rights. We file and prosecute applications for the registration of transfer-of-technology contracts so that foreign currency remittances can be made on them from purchases at Central Bank auctions.
We belong to the Africa Legal Network and this gives us a powerful platform to prosecute the registration and protection of intellectual property rights throughout the entire African continent. Some of our key transactional experiences are as follows:
