Intellectual Property & Product Registration

The intellectual property practice group handles the registration of trademarks and patents under the laws of Jamaica and manages the trade mark portfolios for both local and overseas clients. Members of the team appear before the Jamaica Intellectual Property Office (JIPO) for hearings and otherwise respond to office actions.

The team frequently instructs the litigation department on more contentious matters such as copyright and patent infringement or trade secrets and breach of confidence. In addition, the team advises on more non-traditional areas of IP such as domain names, geographical indications and genetic resource rights (green IP). This practice group provides bespoke intellectual property counselling leading to the development of IP policies for institutions and start-ups looking to protect that valuable idea.

Increasingly, the team assists with the regulatory compliance of products which are to be imported for use in Jamaica including products required to be registered under the Food and Drugs Act and the Pesticides Act.

Clients include local and overseas multinationals, international portfolio management companies, statutory companies, start-ups, inventors, entertainers and artists. The firm is a member of the International Trademark Association and attends the annual meeting of this body.
