Greenberg continues to add to London with double partner hire

Greenberg Traurig Maher (GTM) has continued its hiring drive after adding one partner apiece from Mayer Brown and Watson Farley & Williams.

The US firm has hired former Mayer Brown IP head and London general counsel Stephen Gare to lead its IP practice group.

The firm has also hired competition partner Stephen Tupper from Watson Farley.

GTM London head Paul Maher said: “We’re committed to strategic growth in London and Europe and continue to add top-tier quality lawyers to support that strategy and complement our diverse platform.”

GTM launched during the summer after hiring Maher, who was formerly co-vice chairman of Mayer Brown.

Since then the firm has hired a number of partners including White & Case capital markets partners Tim Jeveons, Andrew Croxford and Andrew Caunt.
