Gambia Joins The Madrid Protocol!


The Gambia’s recent accession to the Madrid Protocol, effective from 18th December, 2015, makes the smiling coast the 96th member of Madrid. The protocol is designed to simplify intellectual property registration process, by making it possible for IP rights holders to designate The Gambia on international applications, to obtain protection for IP works in the jurisdictions of all protocol member states. In anticipation of the protocol, IP lawyers, legislatures, officers, and other stakeholders have undergone specialized training on effective implementation on the new laws. Significant efforts have also been made towards clearing the backlog at the registry, and additional resources have been allocated by The WIPO, in preparation of the Madrid system. Although its practical effects are not yet apparent, the protocol is expected to enhance local procedures and policies currently in place, generate an increase in international applications, and lead to a more profitable IP system in The Gambia overall.

Illinois Work Injury Lawyers – Krol, Bongiorno & Given, LTD.

Accidents in the workplace are often caused by unsafe work conditions arising from ignoring safety rules, overlooking maintenance or other negligence of those in management. While we are one of the largest firms in Illinois dedicated solely to the representation of injured workers, we pride ourselves on the personal, one-on-one approach we deliver to each client.

Work accidents can cause serious injuries and sometimes permanent damage. Some extremely serious work injuries can permanently hinder a person’s ability to get around and continue their daily duties. Factors that affect one’s quality of life such as place of work, relationships with friends and family, and social standing can all be taken away quickly by a work injury. Although, you may not be able to recover all of your losses, you may be entitled to compensation as a result of your work injury. Krol, Bongiorno & Given, LTD. provides informed advocacy in all kinds of workers’ compensation claims, including:

• Injuries to the back and neck, including severe spinal cord injuries
• Serious head injuries
• Heart problems resulting from workplace activities
• Injuries to the knees, elbows, shoulders and other joints
• Injuries caused by repetitive movements

For Illinois Workers’ Compensation claims, you will ALWAYS cheat yourself if you do not hire an experienced attorney. When you hire Krol, Bongiorno & Given, Ltd, you will have someone to guide you through the process, and when it is time to settle, we will add value to your case IN EXCESS of our fee. In the last few years, employers and insurance carriers have sought to advance the argument that when you settle a case without an attorney, your already low settlement should be further reduced by 20% so that you do not get a “windfall.” Representing yourself in Illinois is a lose-lose proposition.
