Tollers Solicitors Milton Keynes Welcomes Craig Harrison
Tollers are delighted to announce a new addition to the firm’s Commercial Services Business Unit. Craig Harrison joined the firm on 2nd January as a partner and head of the firm’s corporate and commercial team.
Craig is a highly accomplished corporate solicitor, having spent over 17 years acting for corporates, professionals and owner managed businesses both in London and the surrounding Home Counties, providing advice, guidance and support across a wide range of corporate transactions including mergers and acquisitions, investments, share buybacks, share option schemes, financing arrangements and joint ventures.
Craig brings a wealth of experience to the team having trained and qualified with Watford based commercial law firm Matthew Arnold and Baldwin (MAB). He joined MAB as a trainee in 1998, qualified in 2000 and became a partner in 2008. Following a year travelling, Craig joined Hertfordshire based Longmores Solicitors as their head of corporate and commercial where he established and developed a successful corporate practice for the firm.
Craig says “I am relishing the opportunity to work with the team at Tollers. I believe in leading by example and showing clients how we can add value to their businesses and organisations.”
As head of the corporate and commercial team, Craig’s vision is to build on Tollers’ successes supporting businesses to date by creating a cohesive team of lawyers that deliver commercially astute and client focused advice to Tollers business clients.
Craig goes on to say: “It is important to recognise that in such a fast-moving legal climate, clients will often want much more than traditional legal advice. Commerciality in approach is what many clients now demand and at Tollers we can deliver a seamless service with a commitment to providing solutions and ensuring that our clients make the most of their opportunities.”
Duncan Nicholson, Tollers Managing Partner, says “We are delighted to have Craig on board, he brings a wealth of expertise and gravitas to the team and will ensure that Tollers continues to provide the highest calibre legal advice to the sectors and markets we serve. The firm’s Commercial Services division can only benefit from having such a well-respected and experienced solicitor heading the team”.
Craig will base himself in Tollers’ Milton Keynes office and will manage the firm’s corporate and commercial operation across all of the Tollers offices.
Outside of work Craig is an avid sportsman and enjoys golf, cricket and scuba diving and the firm are looking forward to introducing him to the many sporting activities that we participate in.
