It is with great sadness and sorrow that we announce the demise of Mrs. Hoda Serageldin who passed away on Monday March 17th, 2014.

Mrs. Serageldin was the Managing Partner of Saba & Co. IP – Egypt until February 2012. She was also the co-founder of the Egyptian National Group of the AIPPI (International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property) which she presided over since its inception in 1993 until her death. She did not only serve as President of AIPPI Egypt, but was also a member of honor and holder of the AIPPI award of merit.

Mrs. Serageldin was an active Patent and Trademark Agent, well-known in her native country Egypt as well as in the international IP circles. Not only was she a pioneer in the field of Intellectual Property, but also a staunch activist for IP causes and a charismatic civil society leader.

She will be deeply missed by all of us at Saba & Co. IP.
