Founded in 1986, Januar Jahja & Partners is a boutique intellectual property law firm based in Jakarta, Indonesia. Over the past two decades, the Firm has grown from a small start-up practice to a leading Indonesian IP firm with over 25 attorneys and staff, representing clients from all over the world. Our clients include leading international and domestic businesses from a wide range of backgrounds, requiring our firm to adapt to meet their differing needs. We have also developed close working relationships with some of the leading IP firms throughout the world.
As a boutique firm focused on intellectual property law in Indonesia, Januar Jahja & Partners has five main practice areas: Trademarks, Patents, Copyrights, Industrial Designs, and IP litigation. For each of these practice areas, the Firm possesses the ability to provide legal advice rooted in experience, professionalism and a deep understanding of Indonesian intellectual property law. The Firm is particularly experienced in handling IP-related litigation, such as Cancellation Proceedings before the Jakarta Commercial Court, as well as trademark infringement cases and other such actions. In 2005, the Firm further bolstered its Patents and Copyrights practices by hiring Mr. Walter Simandjuntak, the former Director of Patents (1997-2001) and then the Director of Copyright and Industrial Design (2001-2005) at the Intellectual Property Office in the Department of Law and Human Rights, Government of Indonesia.
In 2011, the Firm welcomed the return of associate Prudence Jahja following receipt of her LL.M. in Intellectual Property from the Munich Intellectual Property Law Center (MIPLC) by the Max Planck Institute, in Munich, Germany, as well as professional stints in New York and Washington, D.C. In 2012, JJP hired US lawyer Andrew Diamond as a foreign legal consultant to manage the Firm’s relationships with its international clients. In recognition of the Firm’s continued excellence and professionalism, Januar Jahja & Partners has been ranked by a number of organizations and publications, including the Legal 500, WTR 1000 and Asia IP, among others.
