Simmons does the double as Freshfields record goes stale

SIMMONS & Simmons is basking in the glory of an unprecedented month of sporting success.

Fresh from giving Freshfields a 32-5 thrashing in the final of the Law Society rugby sevens tournament, the firm has also walked away as winner of the Young Lord's Taverners solicitors indoor six- a-side cricket competition.

And two of the firm's paralegals – Russell Osman and Angus McLean – played in both of the sides.

The practice's success in the rugby tournament, sponsored by bankers Rea Brothers, was particularly im- pressive because Freshfields has won the tournament so many times the sevens trophy is named after the firm.
