Linklaters hands graduate recruitment role to corporate partner

Linklaters has appointed corporate lawyer Simon Branigan as one of its two graduate recruitment partners.

Branigan has taken over from litigator Euan Clarke, who had been in the role since 2007.

The position is shared by two partners, with capital markets partner Mark Middleton continuing in the role he took on in 2010.

Branigan commented: “We shall ensure that the most talented lawyers-to-be continue to be attracted to Linklaters as a potential employer and I’m looking forward to showing them what we can offer.”

Linklaters global managing partner Simon Davies said: “[Branigan] and Mark will continue to build on the great work of the team, attracting top students to maintain the firm’s position as a leader in the legal graduate recruitment market.

“I’d also like to thank Euan for his guidance, support and enthusiasm in this area.”
