MIP survey gives Spoor & Fisher Top Tier Status in the South African Patents Arena
The IP survey conducted by Managing Intellectual Property is described as the industry’s “biggest, oldest and most detailed analysis of the leading patent firms worldwide.” Each year the publication conducts a comprehensive, five-month long survey of the world IP market, which in turn provides a unique perspective on IP practice – based on the experiences of hundreds of clients and practitioners from the Asia-Pacific region, Latin America, Europe and Africa. The results of this survey are collated to produce a list of global rankings, divided according to territory and with categories covering patent prosecution and contentious matters.
Spoor & Fisher has been accorded Top Tier status in South Africa in both the “Patent Prosecution” and “Patent Contentious” categories. This is not the first time that Spoor & Fisher has achieved this ranking and it has already won a “Top IP Firm in South Africa” rating in a number of previous MIP surveys. Service excellence and client satisfaction are key performance indicators for the firm and it is gratifying to see that a respected independent survey once again has delivered such a positive response.
Rankings in the fields of trade marks and copyright will be announced in the March and April issues of the publication – and the Spoor & Fisher team awaits the results with keen anticipation.
