WIPNET Global comprises top, leading, experienced Licensed I.P. Attorneys (Mandataires Agréés), specialists and support personnel with several years of experience, each specialised in a particular area of Intellectual Property, who render very high quality, diligent, expeditious, cost-effective, efficient and professional services, which services are unrivalled in Cameroon and the entire African Intellectual Property Organisation (OAPI) Jurisdiction.
We represent clients from all parts of the world. The total satisfaction of our clients remains our greatest desire and we prioritise friendly, fruitful, long-lasting and mutually-beneficial relationships above all other considerations.

* With the permanent need to meet up with international standards, daily challenges as well as the various amendments of the OAPI Rules and Administrative Instructions, our information system is systematically and regularly updated and upgraded and the recycling of our personnel is a continuous process.
* We work in close collaboration with partners in other Jurisdictions such as ARIPO, etc.
* We are also highly connected to world-wide Intellectual Property Organisations such as INTA (The International Trademark Association) and always attend international I.P. conferences.

Another cost-effective advantage offered by WIPNET Global is its colossal and unavoidably impressive database and library, stocked with hundreds of the OAPI Official Bulletins (Gazettes) classified from the Year 1966 to date. With such information at our disposal, we can easily inform our clientele on the incidents in the life of their I.P. rights. This stands out as an alternative to formal and paid information requests often carried out at the level of the OAPI Registry, the results of which sometimes take unnecessarily long to be released.
A great number of applicants world-wide have identified and chosen us as their trustworthy partner in Intellectual Property protection and other legal businesses. Why not join them!
