CJCH Solicitors secures new anti-piracy contracts


Welsh law firm CJCH Solicitors has won new contracts from international software companies aimed at fighting international software piracy.

CJCH has signed up Planit Software in the UK, Vero Software of the US and SolidCAM, which is based in Israel, as anti-piracy clients.

The firm already handles anti-piracy work for multiple companies around the world, including Cambridge-based software provider Aveva.

CJCH was also recently awarded £432,000 from the Welsh government to form an anti-piracy headquarters in Cardiff.

Stephen Clarke, CEO of CJCH, said: “Our international reputation for the excellence of our work in protecting clients’ intellectual property is now well established and growing all the time.”

“We have helped recoup millions of euros for clients, and two separate raids in Spain alone last year generated over 500,000 euros in settlements for another client.”
