Claudine Meredith-Goujon and John Patten Discuss London Expansion of IP Capabilities With Managing IP

June 5, 2024

Intellectual property partners Claudine Meredith-Goujon and John Patten spoke with Managing IP about the expansion of Paul, Weiss’s intellectual property and technology transactions capabilities in the London office, and how the importance of IP in transactions is growing rapidly. In “‘Bold move’: Paul Weiss’s IP team on London landgrab,” published on June 5, the partners explain that the firm’s strategic move to quickly build out a strong IP and tech transactions team to complement our London-based PE, M&A and finance offerings is an example of the kind of integrated and high-quality service that our clients expect.

“We decided to grow [in London] to meet the needs of our clients on the ground to provide them with seamless quality services,” says Claudine. “You can’t be a premier top-level firm in M&A without sophisticated IP and transactional lawyers, as IP is core to so many deals.”

John notes that the growth of the London IP team to eight in a mere matter of months is a “testament to the importance of IP and tech and the need for expertise in this space.” IP and tech are now among a company’s core assets, and “more and more companies are starting to realise the value that can be retained from the commercialisation of IP,” John adds.
