About GJE

We believe that IP can make businesses stronger and more successful.  The circumstances facing each company are different so a bespoke approach is always needed.  We work with you to develop strategies that help to make the most from your IP.  We are adaptable and enjoy working with different kinds of companies.  Our clients are our specialisms.  We have client-specific teams and detailed standard operating procedures that are designed to help us fit our clients’ needs (rather than asking our clients to adapt to us).  All of this helps us to be a seamless extension of your team.

Our team brings together the perfect combination of legal, technical, and commercial expertise.  We have core strengths across the full spectrum of IP, and across a wide variety of technologies.  We also have specialist skills in technology areas such as advanced engineering, computer implemented inventions, pharma and biotech.  We believe in people and in training which means that we have strength in depth, and back up at every level.  We also invest in our systems to ensure that we can provide a top level service that is fit for the modern era.

Offices & Locations

We have offices in the UK and Germany and support clients across the world.  

Get in touch


London is one of the world’s leading centres for finance, commerce, and business.  It is also the centre of IP knowledge and expertise in the UK.  It provides a great location for GJE to support both UK clients and international businesses with a presence in the city.


Our Munich office provides a continued presence for us in the European Union.  This allows us to continue to represent our clients in EU trade mark and design issues.  The office also provides a useful base for our work at European Patent Office, when we are attending hearings

Vision & Values

We put intellectual property at the heart of your business so it can flourish.

Integrity – As a business we succeed because our clients trust us to protect and defend their innovation.  We build relationships based on transparency and honesty, and provide clear advice and concise recommendations so our clients can make the right decisions quickly and confidently.

Creativity – When protecting our clients’ innovation, we practice what we preach.  Our intellectual property attorneys are capable of their own innovative thinking to help solve problems and deliver what our clients need to support their business.

Excellence – Our intellectual property attorneys are outstanding in their field, helping them to deliver work of the highest quality and value to their clients.  Striving to be the best, our performance constantly raises the bar for others.

Team work – Working in cross-disciplinary teams, we leverage a wide range of skillsets and expertise to help clients capitalise on their innovation.  The partnerships we forge result in clients viewing us as an extension of their own in-house teams.

GJE Diversity and inclusion

Diversity & Inclusion

Everybody has the right to feel included, respected, and supported.  It’s something we work hard to instil at every level throughout GJE.

Our attitude is to be open and supportive.  That’s why we have a dedicated D&I group made up of people from across the firm, who receive feedback and look for ways to foster diversity.

GJE is proud to be a long-time member of IPInclusive, a network of intellectual property specialists working to make the industry more equal, diverse, and inclusive.  We’re also signed up to the IPInclusive Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Charter.
