Hahn & Hahn, an intellectual property firm headquartered in Pretoria, South Africa and providing a full suite of IP services across the entire African continent, has joined the Gulf Capital-backed CWB-PETOŠEVIĆ merger, a super-regional firm servicing and managing IP portfolios of some of the world’s leading IP owners across the Middle East, Africa, Eastern Europe, and Central Asia.

Gulf Capital is one of the largest and most active private equity firms investing from the GCC to Southeast Asia. Earlier in 2023, Gulf Capital’s portfolio company CWB Group merged with PETOŠEVIĆ Group to form CWB, a multi-regional business that operates as one unit.

We are now excited to welcome Hahn & Hahn into the CWB family. With the newest addition, CWB currently has 150 practitioners and 100 supporting staff, providing services from 29 offices across 100 jurisdictions.

Hahn & Hahn was established in the 1950s and is operated by a team that has vast experience in patent drafting, registration, litigation, and enforcement. The team includes a number of individuals with technical backgrounds and qualifications. It is well recognised for its work representing clients from the communications, consumer goods, electronic, mechanical, chemical and biotechnology sectors.
