Clarion strengthens corporate team with partner appointment


Clarion’s successful corporate team has been strengthened with the promotion of Jonathan Simms to partner.

Jonathan joined Clarion in 2002 as a trainee; he qualified in 2004 and was promoted to senior associate two years ago. He has spent the last 11 years in the firm’s corporate team and has developed a reputation for dealing with corporate transactional and banking work for both businesses and institutional funders.

In Chambers and Partners 2013, Jonathan was recognised as an ‘associate to watch’ and he has also been commended in the Legal 500 as a lawyer who ‘always delivers’. He recently won the Rising Star award at the Professional Fashion Show Ball and Model Employee Awards.

“Jonathan has established a strong reputation in the region, particularly through his work for banks and secondary lenders,” explained Richard Moran who heads Clarion’s eight-strong corporate practice.

“This promotion reflects and recognises Jonathan’s achievements and the significant contribution he has made to helping to build the success of our corporate practice. By harnessing the talents of committed and experienced lawyers like Jonathan, we have been able to create a full service offering providing a more cost-effective alternative to the national law firms. As well as growing our transactional work, Clarion has also proved able to run larger corporate mandates.”

Jonathan comments, “Clarion is a young, dynamic firm with vision and being part of its development has been a fantastic opportunity. In my new role, I will be building on the solid foundations we have established and continuing to develop the firm’s corporate and banking offering.”
