Chicago’s Wildman Harrold loses UK chief

The London office of Chicago law firm Wildman Harrold has been hit by the departure of its UK managing director Martyn Molyneaux.

Molyneaux leaves to head the London office of Leeds patent and trade mark attorneys Harrison Goddard Foote, which is trying to increase its London presence.

The loss is a blow to Wildman Harrold, which has been trying to build on its intellectual property expertise since opening in the UK in July 2001. It is now left with just two attorneys in London.
