Managing IP, in partnership with Adams & Adams, launched the inaugural MIP Africa Roadshow 2016 in New York City on April 6.

Many economists have referred to Africa as the ‘last frontier’, and as African territories continue to evolve and become meaningful players in international markets, so must their laws and systems keep up with an ever-changing world. Adopting strategies for protecting and enforcing IP rights in Africa remains unique. Vastly different approaches need to be taken in a number of these territories in order to effectively protect IP rights and gain traction from the significant economic improvements that have occurred in many Africa economies.

Focusing on these issues, as well as zeroing in on important decisions and rule-changes to watch, the MIP Africa Roadshow 2016 equipped delegates with the knowledge required to improve their workloads. It shed light on strategies for protecting IP in Africa, delved into pertinent statistics and gave analysis on specific jurisdictions.

Registration was free of charge for all lawyers - 6.5 CLE points NY pending.
