I am energised by the opportunity to be part of such a talented group of lawyers and proud to be joining Seddons during a period of significant transformation for the firm.

Simon Ross, Managing Partner at Seddons, said: “It is a pleasure to have David join Seddons and bring his significant experience to the team.
