Eversheds boosts IP team with Slaughters hire

Eversheds has boosted its IP practice with the hire of Slaughter and May senior associate Dominic Dryden as partner.

Dryden qualified in 1999 and his practice covers IP licensing arrangements in the biotech and pharmaceutical sector, as well as IT outsourcing. At Eversheds, he will work with London IP partner John Hull.

Last month, Slaughters lost rated IP consultant Jeremy Phillips, who was reunited with former Slaughters IP partner Nigel Swycher at Olswang.

The Eversheds IP client roster includes Rolls-Royce, Costa Coffee and Heinz.
