Corporate team strengthened with senior appointment and promotion


Rachel Neems joins the corporate team and Jonathan Simms in promoted

Rachel Neems is the latest lawyer to join our expanding corporate team.  Her appointment further boosts the team’s capacity following the recent promotion of Jonathan Simms to senior associate.

Formerly a partner at Keeble Hawson for five years, Rachel has been practicing corporate law since 1999.  Previously, she spent more than eight years with Ford & Warren Solicitors.

Her specialisms include mergers and acquisitions, company share structures, venture capital investments, joint ventures and negotiating commercial contracts.  She has extensive experience of working with both regional and national owner managed businesses.

“Rachel is one of the region’s best respected corporate lawyers and will be a real asset to the team,” commented Richard Moran, who heads the corporate and commercial practice. “As our workload and reputation continue to grow, we are keen to attract high calibre corporate lawyers like Rachel to complement the team.”

Rachel comments: “Clarion has established a strong presence in the Yorkshire deals market with an impressive track record of transactions and a healthy pipeline of deals underway.   I’m looking forward to using my experience to further strengthen the team.”

Rachel joins the nine-strong corporate team as consultant.  Her appointment further boosts the team’s capacity following the recent promotion of Jonathan Simms to senior associate.  Jonathan, a specialist in corporate transactional and banking work, has been with the firm for nine years and has established a strong reputation in the region.

Clarion has built up a 100 strong team including 17 partners.
