Birmingham, West Midlands (PRWEB UK) 15 August 2016
LONDON, August 15, 2016. National commercial law firm, Ortolan Legal, has boosted its Dispute Resolution offering with the appointment of Senior Consultant Solicitor Erica Simpson. Erica joins Ortolan Legal from Shoosmiths’ Birmingham office where she was a Senior Associate noted by the legal directories as a being one to watch and praised as a “knowledgeable lawyer” with a “commercial mind” and a litigator who is “calm under pressure”. Erica is the third senior solicitor to join the firm this year following the appointment of Monica Bridge (Employment) in February and Gaynor Bannon (Commercial Property) in March.
Nick Benson, Chief Executive and Founder of Ortolan Legal said, “We are delighted that Erica has chosen to join our fast growing team. She is a first class lawyer who is clearly very well known within the Birmingham market and I am confident that she will be a real asset to the firm”.
Erica added, “I am very excited to be joining Ortolan Legal at a time when clients are demanding an innovative, cost effective approach to the delivery of traditional legal services. Ortolan’s unique business model allows me to offer my client’s first class advice on a full range of legal issues at highly competitive rates”.
Ortolan Legal was set up in 2009 by ex-city solicitor Nicholas Benson who believed there was a more effective way to deliver high quality, commercial legal advice to clients. The firm’s unique “virtual” model allows the savings made from Ortolan’s significantly reduced overheads to be passed on to clients. As a result, Ortolan’s fees are a fraction of those charged by conventional law firms. Clients and senior legal advisers alike have embraced the model and the firm has gone from strength to strength. With an enviable client base the firm now has 12 senior solicitors advising across a range of business specialisms including corporate and commercial, dispute resolution, insolvency and reorganisation, commercial property, employment and landlord and tenant law.
