New Year, new joiners, and internal promotions at ONTIER LLP

Updated: Apr 12, 2023

2022 was a year of incredible growth for ONTIER’s London team, we welcomed four brilliant lawyers into the partnership including Amy Harvey, Aoife Keane, Felicity Potter (promoted) and James Dixon. Three new managing associates: Simon Cohen (promoted), Emma Hill and Ibar McCarthy and five new associates: Alexander Unal, Khrystyna Khanas, Joe Woodward (promoted), Serena Tam and Laveen Ladharam. Nicola Scarparo and Helen Rainford also secured training contacts.

This incredible growth has largely been a result of the firm’s expertise within the blockchain, web3 and digital asset sphere, as well as their established track record in commercial disputes and international arbitration. Their ability to navigate this space as commercial lawyers and litigators makes them front runners in the competitive London legal sphere.

We are also thrilled to announce the promotions of the following outstanding members of our team:

  • Nicholas Dawson promoted to Senior Associate

  • Tom Leach promoted to Senior Associate

  • Joe Woodward promoted to Associate upon completing a training contract with the firm (His English Qualification is Pending)

David McCoy also joined us in December 2022 as a consultant in our commercial litigation team.

As of January 2023, we also welcome Harry Parker, Marketing and Business Development Director. Harry has spent the last two years as a co-founder and director of a strategic marketing consultancy. At ONTIER LLP he will set our strategic marketing direction, working very closely with the UK and US teams and Global HQ. Harry is also a member of the World Economic Forum's Global Shapers London Hub II, a network of professionals driving dialogue, action and positive change across social mobility, sustainability, DEI, disaster relief and much more.

Derek Stinson, Managing Partner says: "We are tremendously proud to see such positive advancements, as the firm goes from strength to strength."

Here’s to an exciting 2023!
