Our lawyers represent clients in their most challenging and complex intellectual property matters. All our clients have access to the capabilities of our Firm’s lawyers, wherever they are based and can be served in several languages including English and French.
We prosecute and litigate complex IP matters in Burundi, assisting clients in protecting their intellectual property rights from infringement, counterfeiting, misappropriation and unfair competition.
