We are delighted to announce that Lewis Toohey has joined as an associate in the growing commercial team.

Lewis joins from HSBC where he spent a year as a contracts specialist and later as a legal adviser to the supply contracts team. He also worked for Dickinson Dees for two years where he completed his training. Lewis has extensive experience dealing with commercial contracts and, with a degree in Computing, he has a particular interest in information technology and telecoms, outsourcing projects and computer and internet law.

In his new role, Lewis will advise clients on a wide spectrum of commercial contracts including licence agreements, tender documentation, service level agreements and purchase agreements.

Matthew Hattersley, partner and head of Clarion’s commercial team, commented: “We are continuing to expand the team in response to the continued growth of the practice as clients see the value of investing in business focused advice to ensure that their commercial objectives are met when negotiating new relationships.

“Lewis has sound experience in commercial contracts and with his specialist knowledge of the IT sector, he will be a real asset to the team.”

Lewis added: “Clarion has a reputation as a modern, up-and-coming firm, and the commercial team is recognised as a leader in the Yorkshire market, representing some extremely high profile national clients. I relish the opportunity of joining this expanding practice and using my firm grounding in commercial law to help it to continue to grow."

Lewis is a member of the Law Society and the Society for Computers and Law.
