This article reports that EasyGroup has dumped Denton Wilde Sapte in favour of Collyer-Bristow to fight its corner in its high-profile trade mark dispute with mobile operator Orange PLC. EasyGroup held a beauty parade following the collapse of settlement negotiations, conducted mainly in-house but also involving Denton's IP partner John Hull, the firm's client relationship partner. Denton was still invited to pitch for the work, along with Collyer-Bristow and Wragge & Co. There were many, many negotiations.
