Harris left Hammonds for personal reasons at the beginning of the year after two years at the firm, having joined from McDermott Will & Emery. As well as being a solicitor, she is a qualified US attorney and a patent attorney.
Her practice covers patent and trademark prosecution, strategic reviews of IP, and insurance IP. She has acted for Formula 1, Genentech and Johnson & Johnson on trademark and patent procurement matters, and also helped secure the US patents for the landmark cloning project of Dolly the Sheep.
Harris said her practice meshed well with RPC's expertise in pharmaceutical, media and insurance law, and praised her new firm's commercial outlook.
Harris's departure from Hammonds in January coincided with the losses of IP partners Philip Rees to Pill-sbury Winthrop Shaw Pitt-man, Marija Danilunas to Le- Boeuf Lamb Greene & Mac-Rae, and Jonathan Moore, who set up his own practice.
