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.
