Intellectual Property Litigators
Patents - Trade Marks - Copyright - Designs - Trade Secrets
BURRELLS is a firm of consulting intellectual property (IP) lawyers specialising in litigation and opinion work in the fields of both statutory IP rights (patents, trade marks, copyright and designs) and common law rights (such as trade secrets, confidential information, know-how and show-how).
Many of the clients of BURRELLS are South African attorneys who perceive BURRELLS to be the South African attorneys’ IP litigators. When IP litigious matters are thus outsourced to BURRELLS, more often than not the need to instruct counsel is obviated with the concomitant saving in costs.
The logo of BIP (an acronym of Burrells’ IP litigation practice and also, of course, Burrell's Intellectual Property Law Reports) coupled with the scales of justice symbolizes the firm’s focus on a highly educated, academically accomplished and evenly balanced approach to clients’ IP problems.
The quotation by Abraham Lincoln is as it appears in a plaque above one of the entrances to the United States Patent Office. It symbolises the firm's accord with the intellectual property system and its passion for upholding the fair and equitable principles embodied in its system.
