A new senior company commercial solicitor has been appointed to fast-growing Harrogate law firm, Newtons Solicitors.
Scott Simmons, 32, who lives in Pateley Bridge, previously worked in Gibraltar carrying out corporate and trust law work and was a leading member of the team that established Gibraltar’s first e-business incubator programme.
He will work alongside company commercial lawyer, Malcolm Jones, in a five-strong commercial team which works nationally advising businesses on all aspects of corporate and commercial property law including leases, contracts, strategy, intellectual property, employment issues, company structure and share and asset purchases.
Newtons Solicitors managing director, Chris Newton, said:
Our 75 per cent turnover increase in the last 12 months is leading many talented lawyers to contact us wishing to join our business. We are pleased to welcome Scott who has broad experience and adds strength-in-depth to our company commercial team.
Newtons Solicitors has offices in Knaresborough, Harrogate and Ripon and has a dedicated team of solicitors who offer expert advice across all aspects of law.
