2017: What a milestone!
2010: Shop Opens
Clueless about running a business, passionate about intellectual property law and very clear about serving the world, from Africa!
Under 30, female, novice, unknown, one-man band, working in and from the other side of town, it all began!
2010 to 2017
Seven gruelling years trying to find our feet in a segregated, closed market which is extremely competitive and a preserve of only a few, privileged and established law firms.
Seven years later…
We are finally on course…. we can see the direction of the waves.
I guess it’s true, 7 years is of perfection. Perfect? Complete? Apex? Optimum?
No. Of course not.
End of Seven
It is just the end of a 7-year cycle and the beginning of the next walk in the global IP market. Still a long way to go, we are nowhere close to where we want to be but we are not where started off from-: Zero Client, one employee and a sale of hopes and dreams.
We thank our Clients, who have believed in us and have trusted us with their delicate matters…, IP practice is a delicate practice. 90% of the time you are dealing with someone’s dream, an idea not yet birthed or justifying their very existence. Business cannot get more fragile than that. IP is the core of a Client’s whole business and its whole future. Highly sensitive briefs, Clients which require utmost confidentiality, and an attorney with a very positive and creative mindset but still being that objective sounding board and voice of reason! You have to be very open and honest about the legal barriers that your Client can face and still believe in their creation to justify their expenditure in your legal fees. It’s been an exciting journey and we are looking forward to the next 100 years.
