Celebration in modern art for law practice's centenary

Simmons & Simmons is celebrating the past by making an investment in the future.

The firm, which celebrates its centenary this year, has assembled a collection of works created in the 1990s by London-based artists.

Stuart Evans, a corporate finance partner at Simmons & Simmons, worked with art dealer Thomas Dane to assemble the collection, called 'Made in London'. He is confident that the artists, who include Mat Collishaw, Nicholas May and Fiona Rae, will be big names by the end of the century. “The collection is made up of real cutting-edge works,” said Evans.
