Managing Director

Jessica-Jayde Dolata

Attorney of the High Court | Trade Mark Attorney | LLB (Wits)

Jessica-Jayde holds a Batchelor of Laws (LLB) from the University of the Witwatersrand and practices as an Attorney in Cape Town, South Africa. Upon completion of her LLB, Jessica-Jayde served her articles at an established Family Law practice where she honed her skills and developed her interest in both helping her clients settle as well as resolve family-related matters. Here, her innate ability to understand the challenges faced by marital breakdown as well as difficulties within the home environment, coupled with her compassion for those in stressful situations, ensured her success in this field.

After having completed her articles, Jessica-Jayde was offered an opportunity to spread her wings and gain experience in a different area of law. She went on to serve as an Associate Attorney at one of the biggest Intellectual Property Law firms in Africa and it was here that she developed her skill for “challenger thinking” and brought novel and astute ideas to resolve complex legal issues. Her ability to quickly identify the key issues in any case as well as the client’s objectives allowed her to stand out in the service she provided to her clients.

Jessica-Jayde is currently a member of the South African Institute of Intellectual Property Law (SAIIPL) and she is a qualified Trade Mark Practitioner.

In 2022, Jessica-Jayde founded JJB Attorneys, a law firm which was founded as a challenger firm and which embodies her entrepreneurial spirit, enthusiasm.

As the founder, Jessica-Jayde is known for her tactical nous, stamina, and determination to see things through. She has the ability to navigate gracefully through complex legal issues and is fearless in representing her clients’ interests. She is rarely unsettled by unforeseen twists and turns, and is a “steady-hand in choppy seas”. She provides far sighted, objective and tactically astute advice. Her knowledge and expertise provided her with the tools to identify innovative solutions to protect both her clients’ businesses as well as their home lives. Jessica-Jayde’s aim is to make legal advice more intelligible and accessible for the ordinary individual, and to assist her network in the legal road-blocks they may be facing.

Why we do what we do

Our mission is to make legal solutions accessible and intelligible for the everyday individual, like you and I. We understand that not everyone relates to conventional styles of ‘lawyering’ and as such, Dolata Clement & Co. is not a traditional law firm. We think outside the box and offer our clients a curated and unique experience; one that is relatable, tailored to their unique needs and delivered by lawyers who are like-minded, have industry experience and are passionate about what they do.

Once our clients find us, we warmly welcome them into our inner circle. We believe that we create a relationship of trust and satisfaction which comes from doing great work, being easy to deal with and going the extra mile, no matter what. In creating close working relationships with our clients, our aim is to take care of them, their businesses or their families, and to help them reach their goals, no matter how big or small the task may be, no task is too much for us.
