Cobbetts’ Birmingham office has taken a partner from new neighbours Martineau Johnson.
Mauro Paiano will join Cobbetts in November as head of the contentious intellectual property (IP) team, moving just a few floors from Martineaus. The two firms recently took up separate leases in new offices at 1 Colmore Square in Birmingham.
Paiano, who brings an associate with him from Martineaus, specialises in advertising law. He will be Cobbetts’ fourth IP partner nationally.
The hires signal Cobbetts’ commitment to developing its IP practice, which operates within the commercial department.
