Farrer ramps up corporate offering

Farrer & Co has bolstered its corporate team with the addition of two new senior lawyers to boost the firm’s competition and banking divisions. Competition law specialist Christopher Brown joins as a barrister from the Competition Appeal Tribunal, where he was a référendaire (judicial assistant). Simon Graham joins Farrer as a partner on 19 March from the London office of O’Melveny & Myers, where he was an associate. An experienced derivatives and property finance lawyer, Graham will focus on building the team’s banking and restructuring practice alongside partner David Fletcher.
