About Us

The South African Institute of Intellectual Property Law (SAIIPL) was established in 1952 and represents over 187 patent attorneys, patent agents, trade mark practitioners and academics in South Africa who specialise in the field of Intellectual Property Law. The SAIIPL is widely regarded as the custodian of South Africa's intellectual property rights, and comprises practicing attorneys, academics, practitioners in businesses and in general, people interested in the protection and enforcement of intellectual property rights.

The members of the SAIIPL represent the majority of national and international businesses who have built their businesses on brands, innovation and technology, and who protect their interests through our country's intellectual property laws. Members of the SAIIPL also represent the interests of their individual firms and clients at a number of local and international organisations such as WIPO, LES, INTA, AIPPI, PTMY, FICPI, AIPLA, ITMA, MARQUES, etc.
