Olswang takes on Biddle's head of media

Olswang has recruited a new partner to its IP practice. Kim Walker joins the firm from Biddle, where he was head of the media department.

Andrew Inglis, head of Olswang's IP practice which currently employs 22 lawyers, including 4 partners, explains that the appointment is to meet current market demands.

He says: "The commercial IP side of the practice has expanded enormously and we felt we needed somebody at partner level who would do exclusively commercial work. It's a very buoyant area of practice.
