Already a favourite of international brand owners, ACAS-LAW has become a go-to after joining up with Dentons in April 2021 – a move which coincided with its 30th anniversary. “Prompt, trustworthy and readily available”, it handles instructions with “exceptional efficiency and care, which is vital given the evolving state of IP law in the country”. Leading the team is founding member Afolabi Caxton-Martins, a seasoned corporate and commercial lawyer with an affinity for using IP assets to achieve commercial goals. Well versed in all facets of IP law, head of IP Uzoamaka Emerole recently assisted Panasonic’s Japanese representative, Aoyama & Partners, with filings in Nigeria and various advisory matters involving trademark misappropriation and counterfeiting. She also continues to protect the well-known trademarks of US wine and spirits giant Brown-Forman in Nigeria – a task which has also involved opposition proceedings.
