S&Z remains top filer of SA patents for Chinese applicants

S&Z is the top filer of South African patents for Chinese patent applicants. With exclusive use of the GlobalIPCo patent management system, S&Z has reduced the time from filing a South African patent to couriering the patent registration certificate to under 3 months. This commitment continued to be met despite the third COVID wave and South African riots.

In August 2021, the top three South African firms – Adams & Adams, S&Z and Spoor & Fisher accounted for 59% of South African complete patent filings, with the other 41% shared between 23 patent firms. July and August 2021 also saw S&Z filing more South African patents for Chinese applicants than all the other 25 firms combined.

By automating filing, acceptance, publication, registration and courier of South African patents, the GlobalIPCo system enables S&Z to offer South African patents to Chinese Universities and companies at very affordable pricing – a fixed price that includes filing, official fees, acceptance, publication, issuance of the registration certificate and courier.
