Keenly appreciative of the importance of intellectual property as a business asset, the professionals at Apio, Byabazaire, Musanase & Co Advocates put heart and soul into protecting clients’ brands. Staying the course and overcoming seemingly insurmountable obstacles to get marks on the register, the group delivers an outstanding prosecution service; it measures up well on the enforcement and litigation side too, thanks to its refined negotiation, advocacy and alternative dispute resolution skills. The IP group is adroitly led by Jamina Apio, who distinguishes herself through her dedication and commitment to quality. Reflecting on a difficult journey to rights protection, one source comments: “If it was not for Jamina, I don’t think I would even be in business. Having a lawyer of her calibre in my corner has been essential.” Apio does much to support the wider innovation system in Uganda and understands the needs of creative companies and individuals – she gives not just to clients, but to the whole community.
