Société Civile Professionelle Global Africa Intellectual Property Business Consulting, abridged SCP Global Africa IP, is an Intellectual Property business only consulting firm. While a majority of its team of experienced IP experts are specialized in Industrial Property practice, some work only on copyright.
We represent clients worldwide in the African Intellectual Property Organization, commonly known and called by its French acronym, OAPI, grouping 16 west and central African countries, namely: Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon (headquarters), Central African Republic, Congo, Cote d’Ivoire, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Guinea Bissau, Guinea Conakry, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Senegal, Tchad and Togo, with a total population of over 100 million. A trademark registered in OAPI is automatically covered and protected in all 16 member countries. We also register copyrights with the specialized copyright corporations in Cameroon. Yet, we register domain names with the Cameroon Telecommunications Corporation, abridged CAMTEL.
Because we do only IP practice, our team is a rare breed of attorneys (with deep specialized knowledge of things) in the OAPI sub-region. There is not one attorney in the firm who is allowed the liberty to confuse his head with an impressive knowledge of all of IP law. While they are all however proud of a global knowledge of IP law in general, each practitioner specializes in one aspect of the practice, this in order to master it with profundity. Because of this rather high level of specialization, our firm is reputed to be one of the sub-region’s most up-to-the-minute OAPI licensed IP Attorneys with a cutting edge.
With a high reputation for expediency and expeditiousness, SCP Global Africa IP has developed a modern client friendly practice that utilizes state-of-the-art technology.
