Clarion’s team continues to grow with the appointment of another four associates.

Anna-Elise Harvey joins the employment team as a specialist in employment and business immigration, with four years’ experience of advising on day-to-day HR issues, corporate mergers and acquisitions, and contentious matters in the Employment Tribunal.

Anna specialises in business immigration and has particular expertise in conducting right to work checks, and also advises on all aspects of sponsoring migrant workers. Anna provides further strength and depth to Clarion’s business immigration offering.

Zaigham Jaffri has become the latest member to join the real estate team. With experience of property finance transactions, representing banks and other institutional lenders, he is able to advise lenders about security relating to purchases, refinances and development, secured over a wide range of commercial and residential property.

Jack Farrer further strengthens the commercial team. Specialising in data protection and privacy law, he has experience of advising both private and public sector clients.

His expertise includes the auditing of business functions to ensure compliance with data protection and privacy law; and the preparation and negotiation of data processing and data sharing agreements, privacy and cookies policies and other internal data protection policies. In addition to Jack’s general commercial experience, he will support Clarion’s corporate team by assisting in due diligence exercises on both the buy and sell sides of corporate transactions.

Finally, the costs and litigation funding team has also welcomed a new associate. Having spent over ten years as a costs lawyer, Andrew Crisp advises on a wide range of costs matters including those that have proceeded all the way to the Supreme Court. He often attends hearings, and also advises on a variety of funding and retainer issues.

Having worked both in-house and for specialist costs firms, Andrew really understands what is required by law firms and what can be achieved on their behalf. He prides himself on his technical ability and regularly advises legal teams on process improvements and on costs issues.

Roger Hutton, joint managing partner, said: “After another very busy year, we are committed to further investing in expanding and developing our team as demand for our services continues to grow alongside our clients.

“We are pleased to welcome all four talented young lawyers to Clarion – we know they will make a vital contribution to helping us to provide high levels of client care, and we look forward to supporting their career progression.”

Clarion has a 285-strong team, including 30 partners. Having previously been recognised in the Sunday Times ‘Best Companies to Work for’ list, attracting and developing talent remains one of its core values.
