ENSafrica’s IP team recognised by Chambers Global Guide 2019

by the intellectual property department

We are very happy to announce that Gaelyn Scott, head of ENSafrica’s IP department, has once again been recognised as one of three attorneys in South Africa to achieve a Band 1 ranking by Chambers Global Guide 2019.

The guide had this to say about Gaelyn: 

“Head of IP Gaelyn Scott is a high-profile practitioner, best known for her management of a number of blue-chip clients' portfolio of trade marks, and ensuing protection and infringement-related disputes. One interviewee stated: ‘We keep coming back to her - she's very practical and understands the marketplace, especially in Africa.’ Others note her as ‘proactive and thorough,’ as well as ‘very accommodating and always available’."

Gaelyn established the IP department at ENSafrica nine-and-a-half years ago and is a specialist trade mark litigator, with considerable experience across Africa. The department, which offers the full spectrum of IP services across Africa, has since grown exponentially and is considered a major player in the IP legal market in Africa, rivalling the continent’s long-established boutique IP firms.

Chambers had this to say about the firm’s IP department: 

“ENSafrica has a large, full-service IP department that provides specialist services across Africa. The team includes patent attorneys and trade mark practitioners, many of whom are considered leaders in their fields, not only in Africa but internationally. Each of ENSafrica’s offices has an IP capability, making a full-service IP offering across Africa seamless, efficient and cost effective. This sets it apart from its competitors. Operating as part of Africa’s largest law firm, the IP department is able to draw on the extensive and deep skills within the firm to provide legal advice that is both commercially focused and sensitive to a wide range of legal complexities. This also sets it apart from its IP boutique competitors.”
