HSM IP has a wealth of IP knowledge, specialising in the Caribbean, Central and Latin America and offshore jurisdictions. Our broad perspective, practical approach and international experience enable us to offer unique insight into IP issues globally.
Based in the Cayman Islands and independently owned and operated, we boast an experienced team of attorneys and paralegals who deliver first-class services to a broad client base that includes major Fortune Global 500 brand owners, international law firms and other specialist IP practices.
The success and growth of our firm are due to our keen understanding of our clients’ need for a comprehensive ‘one-stop shop’ that offers a wide range of services, from initial consultation to searches, registrations, annuity payments, and monitoring and renewals. Our interactive database helps us to proactively manage each client’s portfolio efficiently and cost effectively in an environmentally friendly and substantially paperless workplace. It also enables us to fulfil specific reporting and invoicing requirements, including multi-currency invoicing and e-billing. We offer a competitive schedule of fixed fees, inclusive of both disbursements and official fees, which means we can provide clients with an accurate estimate of their project costs before embarking on a global filing programme for their portfolio.
As a leader in the field, HSM IP understands the value of long-term business relationships. With competitive rates and a highly skilled team, we are well positioned to meet your legal needs.
