Wilde Sapte has recruited telecommunications lawyer Gerald Wakefield to its major projects group. Australian-qualified Wakefield was until the end of last August head of Charles Russell's telecommunications group. He left, initially to join a telecommunications regulatory body, but ended up working on a consultancy basis for intellectual property firm Rouse & Co.
