One of the world’s leading intellectual property lawyers has come out of retirement to join Howrey.
Jeremy Brown, who retired from Linklaters in July 2005, has been recruited by Howrey as a partner in its London office.
Brown was the head of the IP and technology practice at Linklaters for more than a decade before handing over the role to partner Nigel Jones in December 2004.
For last 18 months, Brown has spent his short retirement as a consultant advising on IP-related issues, as well as continuing to serve as the vice-president of AIPPI United Kingdom.
Howrey chairman and chief executive Robert Ruyak said: “We are extremely happy that such a respected and experienced IP litigator has joined our IP team in London. We believe we now have one of the strongest IP teams in Europe.”
Howey opened its London IP practice six years ago – making it the American law firm’s first European office. In July 2006, Howrey lost senior IP partner Isabel Davies to CMS Cameron McKenna.
