The article reports that the company Denton Wilde Sapte's embattled technology, media and telecommunications department has scooped its first lateral hire since the group was hit last year with a damaging wave of departures. Taylor Wessing IP litigation partner John Linneker is joining Dentons, although a start date is yet to be agreed. Linneker, who was an equity partner at Taylor Wessing, also joins the equity at Dentons. A specialist in trademark disputes and passing off, Linneker was Taylor Wessing's trademarks head and the joint head of the international trademarks group until the roles were abolished more than a year ago.
