Legacy Gouldens IP stalwart Charters Macdonald-Brown has left Jones Day to set up his own practice. Macdonald-Brown, who was head of IP at Gouldens since 1977, which then merged with the US’s Jones Day last year, left the firm last Wednesday (30 June) and started up his new specialist IP practice, entitled Redd, the following day. Joining Macdonald-Brown is partner Simon Chalkley and associate Sara Ashby, who will become a partner at Redd. A spokeswoman at Jones Day said the move was entirely amicable and the firm was still very much committed to growing its IP practice in London.
