SIMMONS AND SIMMONS TO OPEN BRISTOL OFFICE


Simmons & Simmons has announced plans to open an office in Bristol in Autumn 2012.

The office will support the firm in undertaking complex, high value work for clients in a more efficient and cost effective way. Lawyers based in Bristol will initially undertake Projects, Real Estate and Dispute Resolution legal work.

Commenting on the launch, Simmons & Simmons Managing Partner Jeremy Hoyland, said: ‘‘We’ve consistently shown our willingness to embrace different ways of working in order to deliver greater value to our clients. Our lawyers in Bristol will service complex legal work where they have relevant experience and where location is not an issue for our clients.’’

‘‘Clients quite rightly look to firms that can provide overall value. Our office in Bristol will allow us to deliver greater efficiency, while maintaining our reputation for excellence,’’ he added.

Bristol was chosen as a location as it offers a strong pool of talent to meet the requirements of our practice groups and because of its proximity to London. Lawyers in Bristol will be fully integrated with the London office, as well as Simmons & Simmons’ 18 other offices.

The firm has consistently proven itself a champion of value for clients and has a track record for innovation, including winning three FT Innovative Lawyer Awards in the past two years.
