Posted by: HashtagMkt | 16th January 2017

CJCH Solicitors are pleased to announce we have recently signed a contract to fight international piracy on behalf of multinational software company AVEVA.

 The initial 12 month contract, from Cambridge-based Aveva, and will enforce the company’s licences through a network of 32 partner law firms around the world.

Aveva operates across a wide range of commercial sectors, particularly ship building, the automobile industry, oil pipe lines and refineries, and nuclear power stations.

“Over the past few years, we have gained an international reputation for our excellent work in protecting clients’ intellectual property,” says CJCH senior partner, Stephen Clarke.

“Our expertise and experience have helped recoup millions of euros for clients, and we have already achieved our first success for Aveva, within a few weeks of the contract starting.”

CJCH now has open cases for Aveva in Italy, Romania, the Netherlands, Nigeria, Germany and Saudi Arabia.   

CJCH’s reputation as a leader in intellectual property has enabled it to develop a network of partner law firms around the world, which undertake local court action and raids on premises using the products illegally.

Two separate raids in Spain alone last year generated over 500,000 euros in settlements for another client.
