Kisch IP is the oldest Intellectual Property firm in South Africa specialising in patents, trademarks, copyright and designs. In the late 1800s, DM Kisch registered patents for various famous inventors such as Dr von Siemens, Thomas Alva Edison and Guglielmo Marconi. Since then, the firm – now KISCH IP – has secured patent, trade mark and intellectual property (IP) rights for some of the most important inventions and brands of previous and current centuries. Our IP offering is complemented by a full range of commercial and company secretarial services. In addition, we have specialist expertise across the African continent and worldwide, thanks to our extensive experience spanning over 145 years and our network of selected agents.
