Vertex Boosts Employment Team

Vertex Law’s employment team has been further boosted by the arrival of one of Kent’s most experienced legal specialists.

Jonathan Simmons has joined the Kings Hill law firm as Head of the Employment Team having held anumber of senior positions with other legal practices in the county.

A former President of the Kent Law Society (2009/10), Jonathan most recently ran Simmons & Co, a niche employment law firm that he set up in 2007.

“I have known people at Vertex Law for many years and have worked alongside them on a number of occasions,” Jonathan said. “I was well aware the firm provided a high level of commercial expertise along with a very client-focused service so I was confident that my clients would continue to be well looked after once I had joined Vertex.

“I am enjoying being part of a bigger team in a vibrant environment with access to a broad range of expert corporate legal knowledge.”

Jonathan, whose career has included being an in-house lawyer for ICI, acts for large and small businesses and charities, in both contentious and non-contentious work, across a wide range of employment and related issues. His appointment follows that of employment lawyer Erica Dennett, who joined Vertex over the summer.

“Our Employment Team is going from strength to strength and we are delighted that Jonathan has joined us,” said Vertex Law Chief Executive Irfan Baluch. “Not only does he bring a great deal of expertise but he also has the practical experience to help us grow the team further.”

Jonathan, who is married with two grown-up boys and one daughter at school, lives in the heart of the Weald between Marden and Goudhurst.
