HGF promotes five


Intellectual property specialist HGF has made a round of promotions, elevating five patent and trademark attorneys to partner.

Richard Wylie, Andy Camenisch, Jason Lessard, Douglas Drysdale and Bal Matharu were promoted, bringing the total number of partners at the firm to 51.

The promotions follow a strong 18 months of growth for HGF, which has expanded in Europe through new offices in The Hague, Basel and Amsterdam.

Paul Sanderson, CEO of HGF, said: “All five of the new partner promotions are in recognition of their hard work and support for the continued growth and success of HGF and the expertise each individual brings to our specialist teams.”

“They have continuously impressed the partner group and shown they demonstrate HGF’s values with their dedication to clients, along with the expertise and experience they bring to their portfolios.”

He added: “We are delighted they have joined the partner group and look forward to a great future for all of us.”
