RHM Foodbrands, the main operating company of Mr Kipling cakes and Hovis Bread, has become embroiled in a spat with its former interim head of legal.
IP specialist Kevin Mutch was RHM's interim legal head until Thomas Murphy took the helm two months ago. He is claiming that he and one other senior lawyer were made redundant last Thursday (7 April), when he says they were asked to leave the firm by the end of the day.
