We are thrilled to report that ENSafrica was named South African Trademark Firm of the Year at the annual Global IP Awards, presented by prestigious IP publications World Trademark Review (WTR) and IAM.

The Global IP Awards, which recognise law firm excellence in IP, select winners based on rigorous research and hundreds of in-depth face-to-face and telephone interviews with attorneys and their clients.

We pride ourselves in working closely with our clients to understand the commercial drivers behind their trade mark strategies, which enables us to maximise the value that our trade mark advice can bring to a business. We appreciate the ongoing loyalty shown in the ENSafrica IP team by our clients and thank them for their valuable feedback, which was instrumental in our success in these awards. We reaffirm our commitment to continue being our clients' go-to legal partner for all their trade mark, and other IP, matters.

This award is further recognition of the exponential growth experienced by ENSafrica’s IP department, which offers the full spectrum of IP services across Africa, and in which the trade mark practice forms a cornerstone.  In just over 10 years, the team has become a major player in the IP field on the continent.
