Our very first office opened in 1953 - Ramsis Square, Cairo, Egypt

Our goal is to provide our customers with high quality services.

That's why we have registered thousands of patents and trademarks around the world for high profile companies in all industries. 

Currently celebrating its 32nd anniversary, OSPA was established in the United States in 1982 as a branch office of the law firm of A. Sadek Elias, which was founded by Mr. Elias in Cairo, Egypt, in 1953.  For more than twenty years, OSPA has continued the tradition of the original firm by offering the highest quality of service and expertise available in the areas of patents, trademarks, designs and copyrights.

Under the direction of Nazeeh A. Sadek Elias, OSPA is committed to meeting the intellectual property protection needs of its clients with the personal attention and professionalism they have known and have come to depend upon.  In addition to preparing and filing all necessary documents for the registration of trademarks, patents, industrial designs and copyrights, OSPA offers a range of other intellectual property services (detailed on page iv), including litigation and prosecution.


OSPA’s clientele portfolio is extensive and includes all sizes of businesses, from independent inventors and small companies to Fortune 500 corporations.  Its knowledgeable staff is able to service all sectors of business and technology, and has the experience and capability to conduct intellectual property rights business in any country of the world (including developing countries) efficiently and effectively.  Indeed, its clients benefit from the vast network of worldwide associates that the firm has carefully selected and with which it has established time-honored and trusted relationships.


OSPA’s clients notice the advantage of having a single contact for filing in multiple countries, saving clients time and money.  Moreover, with offices in both the United States and Egypt, OSPA has the unique ability to immediately answer its clients’ questions about intellectual property matters in many countries such as those in Africa, the Middle East and Asia—without delays from time-zone differences.  In addition, with its state-of-the-art, custom-designed data system, OSPA is able to store and retrieve its clients’ data quickly, allowing for impeccable maintenance of both electronic and paper records.
