Mr Simmonds has a strong leadership record in the legal services sector with over 20 years’ experience in management and senior operational roles working with both international and UK businesses.
He is new to the region and will be working predominantly from the Grimsby and Lincoln offices.
The appointment will play a key part in the further development, alignment and implementation of the firm’s strategy and values, in addition to reconnecting the people in the return to office work and strengthening client relationships.
“This is a great opportunity for me to join a business which puts clients and people at the heart of what it does and to contribute to its further growth and development,” said Mr Simmonds.
“I am looking forward to the future, contributing my support and leadership, and building strong relationships with our people and our clients.”

“I am extremely proud of everyone for working as hard as they have and we look forward to the enormous contribution Robin will make in strengthening the business and the service we seek to deliver to our clients.”
