Wilkin Chapman Solicitors strengthens the firm adding global experience with the appointment of Robin Simmonds as its new Chief Executive Officer.

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. Robin is new to the region and will be working predominantly from the Grimsby and Lincoln offices.

The arrival of Robin 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. Wilkin Chapman recognises the appointment of Robin as a great opportunity to improve the service and deliver more for the clients.

Commenting on his appointment Robin said:

“I am very excited to join Wilkin Chapman. I was immediately impressed with the people I met while in talks over the role during summer; as well as the clarity of the strategy already in place, the strength and depth of client relationships and the strong market positions that the firm has attained.

“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.

“I am looking forward to the future, contributing my support and leadership, and building strong relationships with our people and our clients.”

Senior partner, Andrew Holt added:

“We are delighted to have Robin on board. Our leadership and management structure has given us the time to carefully select the right person in Robin.

“Whilst it has been a turbulent 18 months with the pandemic to contend with, our people continue to be a testament to our success.

“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.”
