Adamson Jones joins Gateley

Legal and professional services group Gateley has acquired patent and trademark attorneys Adamson Jones.

Adamson Jones is the eleventh business Gateley has acquired since its IPO in June 2015 and is the Group’s first Business Services Platform acquisition.

Business Services is one of Gateley’s four Platforms, the others being Corporate, People, and Property. These are market-facing structures on which the Group clusters complementary legal, and consultancy services. The Business Services Platform supports clients in dealing with their commercial agreements, managing risk, protecting assets, and resolving disputes. It also includes the Group’s multi-jurisdictional forensics and business intelligence services, through Gateley Omega. Adamson Jones complements the Group’s existing legal services in IP and technology, brand and reputation management, media, and privacy.

Adamson Jones is well known to Gateley Legal’s IP team in the East Midlands. The teams are currently working together on a number of ongoing projects and have collaborated on a range of mutual client assignments in recent years.

The Adamson Jones team has 25 staff headed by directors Simon Cooper and Nicholas Ferrar and the business has offices in Nottingham, Leicester and London. Both directors will continue to work as part of the management team post acquisition.

Simon Cooper commented: “We are convinced that combining these two entities will create a truly formidable force enhancing our client offering and providing the framework for our ambitious growth plans.

“At Adamson Jones, we will continue to offer our UK and overseas clients the outstanding, comprehensive and tailored intellectual property services they have come to expect and we look forward to working closely with our new colleagues to enhance the Group’s Business Services Platform.”
