Understanding your intellectual property rights and responsibilities is integral to being able to run your business smoothly
Intellectual Property Law Solicitors
Understanding your intellectual property (IP) rights and responsibilities is integral to being able to run your business smoothly. Not only is it important to protect your own IP, but you also need to know how to lawfully use the IP assets of other companies. With the rise of the internet, securing IP has become more complicated. Here at CJJ Law, we offer bespoke, forward-thinking IP law advice to help you protect your rights and make sure you don’t infringe other companies’ copyright, patents or trade marks.
What is IP?
Your IP is anything that has been created by your company as a result of intellect, such as names, symbols, logos, inventions and designs. While IP is highly valuable to your business, unprotected IP can be a significant risk, so it is always advisable to think about applying for IP protection. In the IT sector, for example, software is often licensed, ideas copyrighted and designs patented, so that they cannot be used unlawfully or copied. The CJJ Law team can help you decide on the most suitable option and guide you through the process.
Whether you need to protect your IP assets or ensure your company does not infringe other companies’ IP rights, we can help with affordable, flexible and tailored advice. To find out more, contact us at CJJ Law today.
Our areas of expertise
- IP disputes: If your photographs, or other work protected by copyright like books, articles and computer software, have been used without your permission we can help you get compensation. And if someone accuses you of using their work without permission, we’ll help you defend the claim. We deal with infringements of all types of intellectual property, as well as disputes about ownership and other matters.
- Registering trade marks and designs: We can help you secure your company’s branding (e.g. its name, logo and tagline) easily and affordably.
- Identifying assets for copyright: While copyright is an automatic form of protection for original bits of IP, we can advise you on copyright assets that might need further protection (and how you can get this).
- Finding patent attorneys: We do not handle patent applications directly, but we can offer advice and introduce you to a trusted patent attorney.
- Licensing and distribution: If you want to enable others to use your IP assets, we can advise you on possible strategies and prepare licence and distribution agreements to ensure assets are fully protected at all times, and that you get the most from them.
- Software licensing: As specialists in software protection, we offer legal advice on software licensing strategies to manage the use and redistribution of your IP assets.
- Selling IP assets: You are free to sell your IP assets, including patents, registered designs or trade marks, to anyone you like. If you decide to do so – or, indeed, if you decide to sell your business as a whole – we can manage the legal process.
- Using other people’s IP: To ensure you do not infringe anyone’s rights when using their IP assets, we can thoroughly review any licences or contracts you are asked to agree to, and advise you on using the assets lawfully.

C.J Jones Solicitors and in particular a member of their team Reesha Panchal, aided myself in a recent employment matter.

Reesha and C.J Jones Solicitors dealt with the matter professionally and in a timely manner to achieve the best possible outcome for myself.

I engaged Reesha in 2016 to resolve an employment matter. It was an emotional time for me and the way that Reesha dealt with sifting out the facts of the matter efficiently and effectively was therefore particularly valuable to me. She is incredibly focussed and gave the right advice at the right time throughout the process. From the moment she took my case, any stress I had felt was significantly reduced.
Reesha handled the ensuing negotiations with great skill, and was ready to take calculated risks that contributed to a very satisfactory outcome.
I wouldn't be here today if it weren't for Reesha Panchal of CJ Jones Solicitors. When I ran into a big personality conflict at work that led to protracted difficulties with my employer, Reesha expertly guided me through internal grievance proceedings and communications with senior management always hitting the right tone. The remarkable outcome was that I was able to return to work notwithstanding feelings had been running high.
As a lawyer myself I've worked with a lot of my profession: Reesha is one of the smartest people I know and I have turned to her throughout this unfortunate episode.
We’ve used CJJ for around 2 years now and they’ve become our go-to for anything legal. Always friendly, helpful and going beyond what we’d expect of them, I can’t recommend them highly enough.
