The Leadership Team
The leadership team at the firm is headed by Simeon Spencer and Antoine West.
Simeon Spencer is the firm's original founder and is the Senior Partner. He is recognised as one of the UK's leading employment lawyers and also practises in commercial law. On a personal note, Simeon has for many years led groups on long-distance cycling and on rock climbing expeditions. He is used to planning for the journey, leading from the front and looking after the well-being of all team members to reach exciting destinations. He applies the same team-based approach to help ensure all members of the firm thrive.
Antoine West is the Managing Partner. He heads up recruitment to the firm and also deals with management and operational issues. Antoine loves good food, wine and company and a tradition of hospitality. It is no surprise that the firm gets together regularly for its lunches and dinners! Like Simeon he is keen on business and innovation, which are a central part of hotel construction and tech businesses that he set up. They have both worked on incorporating tech to give the firm's lawyers greater flexibility and make the firm's processes more efficient.
Kate Robottom is Practice Director, dealing with all Practice Management issues, including accounting and finance and support services provided by the firm. Kate worked as an accounts manager on one of the leading investment banks' trading floors. She is great at harnessing technology and being the human bridge between lawyers and clients. She had grown up on a farm and is therefore supremely practical and resourceful.
