Welcome to our site!


We are a boutique, full-service South African Intellectual Property law firm dealing with the main areas of IP, such as trade marks, patents, registered designs and copyright.


Africa is the historic global centre of innovation and connection. At De Beer Attorneys we celebrate this rich history through our work. We value this legacy of ingenuity through our extensive portfolio of intellectual property clients whose novel ideas, inventions and trade marks we work tirelessly to uplift and protect. We stay true to our culture of connection by showcasing our valued clients to the world via our powerful and vast network of agents who span every corner of the globe, together with giving back to the South African community who raised us, which we take great joy in uplifting through our outreach efforts.  


Clients often approach our firm seeking relief from a legal issue or with exciting commercial ambitions in mind. While these needs fall at opposite ends of the spectrum, the pain point that our clients share is that they feel powerless in the pursuit of a legal solution to their problem. We practice an open-door policy with our clients and foster relationships based on transparency, effective communication and respect while ensuring that our client’s needs remain our foremost priority throughout the process. We want our clients to feel heard throughout the legal process because we recognise that no one knows our client's business or concept better than they do.  


Intellectual Property law will always be our core offering at De Beer Attorneys. IP is our passion. We pride ourselves on our reputation as an up-and-coming Intellectual Property firm in the African region, in addition to boasting a vast network of agents across the globe, including expertise in Africa’s IP systems such as OAPI and ARIPO. We have expanded our practice areas to complement this niche by offering counsel in Commercial Law, Mergers & Acquisitions, Technology Law, Cyberlaw and Civil Litigation.  


We are not your typical legacy law firm that has been around for tens of decades. As a Level 1 B-BBEE contributor law firm, we are committed to fostering an inclusive and diverse future that proudly represents the next generation of African legal ingenuity. Through working with us, we offer you an all-access pass to the commercial, creative and engineering innovation that our community of African minds will drive forward soon.
