Clyde & Co launches Kuwait IP office


Clyde & Co has launched a new intellectual property office in Kuwait.

The new office completes its network of IP offices across the Gulf Cooperation Council countries.

The network spans Bahrain, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates.

Clyde & Co’s new office will provide trademark and patent filing services for the region.

Rob Deans, partner and head of IP at Clyde & Co, said: "The completion of our GCC network of offices highlights our commitment to expanding our intellectual property capabilities across the Middle East region.”

“Importantly, this coincides with the introduction of the GCC Trade Mark Law, which increases the importance of being able to provide a consistent and seamless service across the region. Our continued aim is to provide our clients with a pre-eminent service for all intellectual property matters across the Middle East region.”

He added: “The efficiencies of our model also enable us to lower the cost to clients of protecting IP rights in the region."
