Our legal minds protect what your creative mind conceives.

Whether you are a global corporation with a large IP portfolio or an individual artist or inventor with a new creation, managing and protecting your intellectual property is crucial. The IP lawyers of Wole Olanipekun & Co. offer a breadth of experience across the full range of intellectual property matters in Nigeria and internationally.


Shaping Nigeria’s Intellectual Property Regime

The concept of intellectual property has taken hold in Nigeria. Companies across all sectors and individual creators alike are eager to have their works protected and respected. 

With offices in the business centres of Lagos and Abuja, our firm has our fingers on the pulse of the IP awakening. We frequently take up issues of first impression, serving the dual purpose of securing our clients’ IP rights while further developing the country’s IP law.

Moreover, the IP movement is being led oftentimes by younger, digitally connected people. We have carefully built our IP team to include younger but very accomplished lawyers who are part of the vanguard of IP growth in Nigeria. We understand the value inherent in your creation, and we put all of our efforts into defending and protecting it.
