About The Little IP Company

Gemma Ryan is an Intellectual Property Lawyer and a member of The Chartered Institute of Trade Mark Attorneys (CITMA).  She acts for clients in contentious and non-contentious matters relating to trade marks, passing-off, copyright and designs. Please see Services for more information. 

After over 14 years of working for firms of Solicitors and Patent and Trade Mark Attorneys, Gemma decided to establish The Little IP Company in February 2022, to step away from the demanding corporate legal world, seeking a better work/life balance for her young family. 

Gemma has worked with a variety of clients from entrepreneurs through to corporate and well-known brands, protecting and defending their IP. Recent cases include trade mark oppositions, invalidity and cancellation proceedings, complex trade mark, design and copyright infringement matters. 

Gemma takes a no-nonsense approach, providing commercial advice and resolving disputes in an efficient, client focused way. She has particular experience in retail fashion, enforcing rights and defending actions brought by well known brands. Such actions have involved trade mark infringement, design infringement, passing off, copyright infringement and counterfeit goods. 

As well as being passionate about IP, Gemma also loves building great relationships with her contacts and clients. The Little IP Company has enabled her to work closely with her clients and essentially become part of their team. Gemma can work with you and your team, taking an ‘in-house’ approach to your IP, spending time to understand your business now and your future plans. Enabling you to plan together the best way of protecting your IP for your budget. 

Gemma is happy to work on a fixed fee, project basis or on an hourly rate, providing you with excellent legal advice without the large legal fees associated with instructing the more traditional law firm. Most importantly, you will always deal directly with Gemma.  

Gemma Ryan is a sole trader, trading as The Little IP Company. Gemma has professional indemnity insurance and is regulated by IPreg.
