IP specialist Rebecca Horne rejoins Taylors

Commercial disputes and intellectual property expert Rebecca Horne has rejoined Taylors Solicitors after spending almost two years at Napthens.

Rebecca initially joined Taylors in 2018, and returns to work alongside the firm’s head of intellectual property, partner Tony Catterall.

Her appointment follows the arrivals of partner Stuart Farr and senior associate Alison Rowley to the Taylors’ disputes team which recorded a year-on-year fee income increase of more than 30 per cent in the first half of 2021.

Tony Catterall said: "I am thrilled to have Rebecca back on my team. She is an extremely experienced solicitor who is a delight to work with, and her appointment further enhances the IP team’s strength in depth."

Rebecca said: "Now that I have gained more disputes experience, I have made the decision to specialise in intellectual property.

"I recognise that Tony Catterall is acknowledged nationally and internationally as a leading practitioner in this area of law, and most particularly in the fields of copyright and design. I believe I can develop my career much more effectively by working closely with him, and I am delighted to return to Taylors."
