On the outset of every project, we consult our clients to clarify the objectives, and the available courses of action, as well as assessing the potential ramifications and the associated costs. Clients are kept informed as the case progresses.
2. Cost Aware Commerciality
In recommending solutions, we ensure that we have a proper understanding of our client's business and commercial interests in order to attain a suitable balance between costs and the achievement of the client's objectives.
3. Accessible & Responsive
We strive to be accessible and responsive at all times, working closely together with our clients to arrive at timely and effective solutions.
4. Service Excellence
In line with our corporate values, we strive to provide the best service in all ways possible, not only by prompt and proactive responses, but by also working with high integrity to honour our client's trust in us. Communication is an important service value, and sharing information is vital. We recognize that need and have therefore set up our customized online IP tracker portal which will allow clients to obtain information on the status of their IP prosecution matters, including automated updates as to recent changes and developments.
