Simon Crossley left the Dorsey Cambridge team recently.

While Dorsey is shaping up strong reinforcements for its Cambridge practice, FFW has headhunted Craig to strengthen its own footprint in the technology capital of Europe.

The company has a specialism in representing Japanese companies – and a whole clutch of hi-tech Japanese firms in the fields of software and games are now in Cambridge – as well as other key clusters in which the East of England is strong. Its clients also include the UK government.

Craig won a high profile landmark case for Bill Gates’ company Corbis against E-Data last year and his stock is high globally.

Several of his Cambridge clients have fllowed him to FFW, including Corbis. Craig said: “Dorsey is committed to Cambridge and remains unique in being the town’s only American law firm.

“FFW offered a new challenge at the right time. It spans some exciting business areas across a range of international markets and its strategy for expansion excited me.”
