Intellectual Property Solicitor Chester

Intellectual Property

We are your number one choice for when you need an intellectual property solicitor near Chester.

All too often valuable intellectual property rights are not properly considered when making decisions in an increasingly knowledge-driven business environment. If you do not take steps to secure, protect, commercialise and enforce your intellectual property rights, you run the risk of losing your competitive advantage and, worse still, seeing others take advantage of your efforts.

Our expert solicitors will not only assist in the identification and, where appropriate, registration of your intellectual property rights but will also help you ensure that your intellectual property rights contribute to your balance sheet. We also actively manage intellectual property portfolios for many of our clients ensuring that any renewal dates are not missed and all registrations are kept up to date.

At Jolliffes, we are experienced in getting results for businesses or individuals, protect their rights and assisting with accusations of infringement. However, we recognise that deterring infringement of your rights is often the best way to realise the value of your intellectual property.

    This is one solicitor I can thoroughly recommend. She has stuck by us and helped and guided us through several court appearances and complex financial matters over the last three years when we went through the most difficult and challenging times of our lives. Her knowledge and experience is second to non and is a kind and understanding person as well.


    We've dealt with many areas of law with Jolliffes of which they have always been knowledgeable, helpful, quick to respond and acted with us in mind. We continue to use them 5 years on!


    Ryan Marr was great from enquiry to completion. He’s friendly, easy to get in contact with and responsive. He knows his stuff, but crucially knows how make the technical stuff easy to understand. Reception desk staff were lovely too - friendly and helpful. Couldn’t recommend Jolliffes more.


    Great from start to finish … speedy and great communication … much faster completion than expected in this current climate so would thoroughly recommend
