Innovations in electronic, mechanical and software technology are a dynamic and increasingly growing field, and as such protecting these inventions should be handled by a patent team who not only understands the market but has the technical expertise and experience for the most successful outcome.

Local client-based solutions

The Adams & Adams Information and Communications Technology patent team deals with local clients who want to proceed with patent applications for inventions in South Africa and abroad.

We meet with clients face to face so that we have a clear understanding of their aims, and they feel assured that they are in the right hands when it comes to handling their requirements, including advising on and drawing up specifications and filing applications in one or more countries.

Our clients range from academic and research institutions to both small and large companies as well as individual inventors.

Technical expertise and experience

Most members of our team have a background in electronic engineering, which provides a depth of technical knowledge to a patent application. We have a wide range of experience, specialising in high-tech and software-related inventions, including Artificial Intelligence, machine learning and quantum computing.

We're available to hear about any creative idea in the information and communications technology field, whether simple or complicated, and provide the expertise in taking the next steps in patent protection to maximise the results of your development and investment.
