Citing persistent client conflicts and poor work flow with the U.S. side of the firm, Howrey’s Europe IP head and at least 11 other partners are departing to set up a new IP firm. Fourteen associates are also expected to leave. Howrey confirmed the departures Friday afternoon, adding only that the split is amicable and that a statement from the firm was forthcoming.
All but one of the partners and all but a few of the associates leaving are based in Amsterdam and Brussels, the two offices at the core of Howrey’s European IP practice. The two offices were the most profitable globally last year, according to the firm.
