Start-up IP boutique iLaw now employs 10 lawyers following the hire of former DLA Piper commercial lawyer Rachel Laurent.
Laurent specialises in commercial reputation management for media clients, as well as IP and technology matters. Since qualifying at Clifford Chance in 1993, she has worked in-house at the National Grid as well as at DLA Piper and Watson Farley & Williams.
The hire coincides with the launch of iLawyer, a service the firm has introduced with the aim of cutting legal fees. The scheme will see iLaw charge a fixed monthly fee for day-to-day commercial and IP advice.
Bobby Gill, co-founder of iLaw, said: “Many businesses are really feeling the pinch at the moment.”
