 INLEX AFRICA


INLEX AFRICA, the first French IP Law firm located in Africa, was established in Cameroon in 2014 by one of  the co-founders of INLEX IP EXPERTISE, Franck SOUTOUL. Located at the doorstep of OAPI, INLEX AFRICA effectively guides and supports clients in the protection of their IP assets in Western Africa . 

Growing demand and interest in Africa, led the firm into further expansion and the next opening took place in Mauritius. Mauritius was chosen for its strategic position as gateway to Eastern and Southern Africa for South Asian and Middle East clientele and for its closeness to ARIPO region.  Finally, the latest development was the opening in Morocco, enabling the firm to efficiently cater the needs of clients operating in Northern Africa.

Geographic proximity allowed us to build strong and reliable partnerships and develop comprehensive know-how of legal practice in Africa to deliver optimum results for our clients. Today, the firm offers comprehensive and pragmatic legal advice, conducts clearance searches, develops pre-filing strategies and accompanies client’s in prosecution and enforcement of their IP rights throughout the entire continent.
