Jackson, Etti and Edu (“JEE”), is a full-service sector focused law firm and arguably the leading Intellectual Property practice in Nigeria. As a proactive and dynamic law firm our prowess in the local and regional market has been defined by our drive to offer client centric and cost-effective service that enables our clients to achieve their business goals seamlessly. As an African law firm, we have reach across more than thirty-five (“35”) African countries, where we offer a full range of IP services including copyright, domain names trademarks, industrial designs and patents at competitive rates. We have an experienced and dedicated brand protection and anti-counterfeiting practice, that encompasses regulatory compliance.
Our vast & integrated professional services network makes us a one-stop-shop for our clients’ needs on the continent. We have several offices in Nigeria and associate offices in Accra- Ghana, Yaoundé- Cameroon and Harare-Zimbabwe. Further, our associate offices in Harare and Yaoundé are within vicinity of the headquarters of the regional bodies ARIPO and OAPI, respectively. We register domain names and provide full legal representation in opposition matters. In addition, we offer complimentary trademark “Watch Service” of various African Trademarks Journals for clients, at no cost. The watch service allows us to manage possible trademark conflicts in any African jurisdiction, with a view of preventing the registration of the offending trademarks.
Our firm strongly believes that the “knowledge economy” and “intangible assets” remain a relatively untapped source of wealth in Africa. We provide full legal support to protect your creativity and invention. We have a busy pro-development IP portfolio that serves Small to Medium Business Enterprises in various start-up businesses as much as large corporations. We also advise on IP issues in commercial transactions from audits and valuations to licensing and franchising.
JEE is a business partner to its clients, hence we do not just offer “run-off-the-mill” legal work. We have been able to utilise our sector focus to provide knowledge and insight to corporates for achieving better business decisions. Our services are therefore tailor-made to provide both legal and appropriate business solutions. As an example, Health and Pharmaceuticals is a very active sector that we engage in as a firm such that we have represented and advised some of the largest health care companies in the world, that operate in the West African market.
Our promise to you may be summarised as follows:
Convenience & Value: Efficient service delivery, prompt attention, regular updates, expert advice at competitive pricing;
Combined regional experience & knowledge exchange: direct expert advice from leading legal & business professionals in every country we operate, to give you timely legal & industry updates;

Transparent, cutting edge data management: we have made use of PATRICIA ®, the renowned IP data management system developed by Patrix AB of Sweden for over a decade.
