Joelson, one of London’s leading law firms, has welcomed an experienced litigator to its talented team, as it continues to see an increase in demand for its services.

Simon Wallis joins the firm having previously worked at a Silver Circle law firm, where he worked on a wide range of disputes – ranging from smaller claims up to £100m litigation cases.

He works with a wide variety of clients, including entrepreneurs, SMEs and listed companies and has acted on behalf of clients in the County Courts, the Upper Tribunal, the High Court and the Court of Appeal.
