COVID-19 UPDATE

Dear Colleagues,

During this unprecedented situation we would like to first and foremost extend our thoughts to all those that have been affected by the COVID-19 and we wish all of you good health and a full recovery.

We would like to inform you that Hahn & Hahn is in the fortunate position to be able to conduct our business remotely and will continue to operate without any disruption in our services.

The South African Patent Office has confirmed that they will remain operational, however, should this change we will continue to provide updates in this regard and adapt all deadlines based on their decision so as to ensure that all IP rights in our care will be preserved and safely maintained.

Our teams are available to support you in any way we can.

UPDATE

On 23 March 2020 the President of South Africa announced a lockdown for the period from midnight 26 March 2020 to 16 April 2020 during which period only essential services will be allowed to stay open. All South Africans have to stay home.

The South African Companies and Intellectual Property Office (CIPC) has announced that it will be closed from 25 March 2020 until 30 April 2020 and that all of these days are Dies Non and that any deadline falling within that period will automatically extend to the first day of re-opening.

We will be working remotely but will not be able to do any filings during the above period.
