Based in the Cayman Islands 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.
Our interactive database enables us to proactively manage each client’s portfolio efficiently and cost-effectively in an environmentally friendly and substantially paperless workplace. It also enables us to fulfil our clients’ specific reporting and invoicing requirements, including multi-currency invoicing and e-billing.
The growth of our firm has enabled us to establish a specialist Caribbean department whose members regularly contribute to leading IP publications. We have over 50 country guides for patents and trademarks across the Caribbean, which can be viewed on this page.
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.
