Clarion boosts corporate recovery team with further hire
Annette Thomson has joined Clarion in Leeds as an associate solicitor in its corporate recovery and insolvency team.
After completing her articles at a leading law firm in Johannesburg, Annette qualified as a barrister in South Africa in 2010 and practiced there for six years before joining Clarion. She has expertise in contract and insolvency law.
Annette is currently studying towards the QLTS and will qualify to be admitted to practice in England and Wales in summer 2018.
Ryan Millmore, joint managing partner and head of the firm’s corporate recovery and insolvency practice, said: “We’re always keen to bring new talent on board, particularly lawyers who can add a fresh perspective to what we do. With six years’ experience in insolvency law, Annette is a great fit with the team.
“This year has been a particularly busy year for the practice with growing numbers of clients seeking advice on insolvency, restructuring and turnaround matters and the addition of Annette to the team will further strengthen our offering and enable us to continue to provide excellent service to clients.”
Annette commented: “I feel fortunate to have joined one of the leading insolvency law teams in the region and look forward to using my skills to help clients to find practical commercial solutions. It will also be a great opportunity to learn from such experienced colleagues.”
