Jones Day is helping two of its former IP partners to launch their own practice by offering them rent-free space in the firm’s London office.
The firm has given former legacy Gouldens partners Charters Macdonald-Brown and Simon Chalkley 5,000sq ft for a rent-free period of 18 months. Jones Day is also providing the pair with administrative and technical support for the same period.
