Clifford Chance’s global head of IP is stepping down, to be replaced by a Palo Alto-based partner.
John Kidd, who has held the global role for four years, is due to retire from Clifford Chance in April 2005. Daniel Harris, who also oversees the magic circle firm’s Palo Alto office, will take over the role.
In June Harris was elected to the firm’s partnership council, coinciding with the mass move of the firm’s West Coast practice to Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe.
Clifford Chance’s Palo Alto office is its only remaining base on the West Coast after the firm shut down its San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego offices in the summer.
