When your project meets law

IFORI is a niche legal firm that specialises in intellectual property law and ICT & privacy law in addition to practising general commercial law.

We would be happy to help you protect your IP (trademarks, patents, designs, copyrights, trade secrets, etc) worldwide and draft and negotiate your IT agreements and R&D and trading contracts. If your company requires structural legal support in-house, IFORI is exactly the partner you are looking for.

It is not desirable to cultivate a respect for law, so much as a respect for right.
