A law firm specialising in intellectual property crime is to open an anti-piracy HQ, creating 71 new jobs.

CJCH Solicitors has received £432,000 from the Welsh Government to help set up the new operation, which will be based in Cardiff.

The firm said the new jobs would be in place by 2020.

Economy Secretary Ken Skates said it would "only enhance Wales' standing as a leading authority in IP".

He added the investment would create highly-paid, skilled jobs offering significant employment opportunities for law graduates as well as cyber security and forensic IT graduates.
