A&O partner quits for Hale and Dorr

Hale and Dorr has scored a coup by taking on Allen & Overy (A&O) IP litigation partner Robert Barry.
The magic circle partner will move to Hale & Dorr’s London office, where he will rejoin former KLegal lawyer Mark Haftke. Both Barry and Haftke have previously practised at Bird & Bird.
Barry is the fourth partner A&O has lost to a US firm. Euan Gorrie moved to Simpson Thacher & Bartlett, Nick Segal then left for Davis Polk & Wardwell and capital markets partner Andrew Brodie departed for Milbank Tweed Hadley & McCloy.
