Adamson Jones, part of Gateley
28th April 2022
As announced at the beginning of the year, Adamson Jones joined Gateley, one of the UK’s largest legal and professional services group.
It is now over four months since joining, so we thought it would be a good time to tell you a little bit more about Gateley, and how Adamson Jones is working alongside our sister companies within the Group.
Adamson Jones, part of Gateley
You may have noticed that we look a little different! We are now called Adamson Jones, part of Gateley and have adopted the Gateley branding. Company values were an important factor in us joining the Group, and our values align closely with those of Gateley. By adopting the Gateley branding we show that we are united in our purpose and values, and the way in which we interact with clients and our communities. As part of Gateley we will provide the same high levels of service delivered with the openness, approachability, and efficiency that you have come to expect from our business.
At the same time, we felt it was important to retain the Adamson Jones name in recognition of the way in which we are unique. As a team of patent and trade mark attorneys, we differ from solicitors and other lawyers, although we often work closely together. Patent and trade mark attorneys specialise in obtaining IP rights, whereas IP solicitors typically specialise in litigation, licensing issues or other commercial agreements related to IP rights. Patent attorneys also have scientific backgrounds specific to our areas of practice, which are vital in understanding the nuts and bolts of our clients’ innovations and advising accurately on the relevant scope of protection.
We remain a dedicated and specialist patent and trade mark attorney practice, working in a progressive arrangement alongside our colleagues in the wider Group to provide clients with the benefits of joined-up thinking.
So, what else is new?
Gateley is structured around four platforms, to help with the challenges and opportunities that clients are facing in respect of:
- Business Services matters
- Corporate activities
- People issues
- Property matters
Adamson Jones sits within the Business Services platform, which combines the considerable commercial expertise of commercial, IP and dispute resolution lawyers with that of the forensic and business intelligence skills of the Gateley Omega team and the patent and trade mark attorneys within Adamson Jones.
As part of the Business Services platform, we can offer our clients a greater breadth and depth of expertise and services including, but not limited to:
- Seeking investment
- Entering new markets
