Collas Crill has strengthened its dispute resolution team in Jersey with the promotion of Simon Hurry to partner.
Simon’s promotion brings the Jersey team to five partners and comes as the firm looks to capitalise on a particularly strong period of growth across its global litigation and dispute resolution practice.
Since joining the firm in 2008, Simon has developed a practice focused on high-value commercial litigation and insolvency in a contentious and non-contentious context, with an adjunct specialism in employment law. Simon regularly advises directors, liquidators, shareholders and creditors of companies and funds.
In 2015, Simon was awarded the Jersey Law Society's 'Junior Lawyer of the Year' and is ranked for dispute resolution in both Chambers & Partners and the Legal 500.
Speaking of his promotion, Simon said: “This is a particularly exciting time to join the dispute resolution partnership in Jersey. “The dispute resolution team continues to go from strength-to-strength and establish itself as a leading service provider in an increasingly diverse range of specialisms. The team's passion to excel and go the extra mile for our clients has consistently set us apart from our competitors.
“I hope to continue to nurture and develop this ethos, not only in the dispute resolution team in Jersey but across the firm globally.”
Nuno Santos, managing partner in Jersey, said: “It gives me the greatest pleasure to welcome Simon to the Collas Crill partnership.
“Simon thoroughly deserves his partnership status having excelled in every area of his legal practice and matured as a lawyer over the years to become a key figure in the Collas Crill legal team.
“Since I first interviewed Simon in 2008 I knew that he had the potential to become a partner of the firm and I am delighted that he has now achieved that well-deserved goal.
“Simon is loved by clients and members of the firm alike and his energy and enthusiasm are infectious and inspirational.
“He has a long and very successful career ahead of him and I look forward to watching him develop even further as the years unfold. Well done indeed Simon.”
