Intellectual Property

Bureaucratic hurdles can bog down registering items such as goods and services for trademarks, or inventions and designs as patents. The law firm of Hussein Ranchhod & Co. can help companies or individuals navigate the process quickly and efficiently. We will help you expedite the paperwork and forms necessary to process the registration including forms of specification. The firm will protect your rights as the inventor or assignee of the invention at issue. Hussein Ranchhod & Co. is experienced in working with PCT and non-PCT applications, and can assist you with the search reports to assure you there are no substantially similar products or services to interfere with your application process.

We are also able to help international firms or individuals doing business in Zimbabwe receive intellectual property protection through the Africa Regional Intellectual Property Office (ARIPO), located in Harare.
