Simmons & Simmons has created a head of European client relations role, intended to enhance and innovate the firm’s approach to client relationships across the EU in the post Brexit landscape.

The role will be filled by Simmons’ German country head and head of Dispute Resolution, Hans-Hermann Aldenhoff, with immediate effect. Hans-Hermann will be stepping down as disputes head to focus on the new role.

Hans-Hermann will take ownership of the firm’s Euroshore initiative, supporting clients in their post Brexit transitions, with a particular focus on the financial and commercial centres in Europe. In addition, Hans-Hermann will also work with other European partners to broaden and deepen client relationships across our EU offices.

Commenting on Hans-Hermann’s appointment to this new role, managing partner Jeremy Hoyland said: “I am delighted that Hans-Hermann will be Simmons’ first head of European client relations. With his excellent client skills and existing relationships across the continent, he is well placed to look beyond the boundaries of country, practice group and sector to maximize our potential offering to clients across the whole of the EU.”

On taking up the role, Hans-Hermann commented: “The creation of this new role demonstrates Simmons’ commitment to continuing its ambitious growth across the EU. Under the firm’s four sector strategy, there is huge opportunity to develop existing client relationships across practices, whilst also forging new relationships with prospective clients. I see particular opportunity for the firm to support our clients in their adjustment to the post-Brexit realities and to the increasing pan-European business models of the future.”

London partner Emily Monastiriotis will be replacing Hans-Hermann as the firm’s international practice group head for Dispute Resolution with immediate effect. Prior to taking on this role, Emily was Simmons’ UK disputes head.
