Harper James appoints a trio of new talent for 2020

We’re continuing to expand our team and are delighted to announce a trio of new legal appointments for 2020. We welcome employee incentives solicitor Ian Fraser, commercial associate Angela Kerry and legal assistant Katrina Leaf.

Ian joins us as an employee incentives specialist, with over 25 years’ experience. A leading practitioner in the share schemes field, recognised by Chambers Legal Directory and the Legal 500, Ian was a previously a partner in Simmons and Simmons and K&L Gates. His areas of expertise include: EMI, CSOP, SIP and SAVE plans, growth/hurdle share and phantom equity arrangements.

Angela came back into practice in 2018, following a career in academia as an associate professor and LPC course director at Birmingham City University. Originally qualified into a large commercial practice in Birmingham (now DLA), Angela brings a wealth of experience in commercial contracts, from T&Cs to bespoke agreements across a range of industry sectors.

New legal assistant Katrina Leaf will be assisting our solicitors in a number of practice areas, with a particular emphasis on commercial property. A recent graduate of the University of Manchester, Katrina achieved a distinction in the Legal Practice Course.

Toby Harper, CEO and founder, welcomed the news: “We have ambitious plans for 2020 at Harper James, and we’re starting the year as we mean to go on. Investing in specialist skills means we’re in an even stronger position to serve the business legal needs of our varied client base at the start of the new decade.”
