Full service commercial law firm, HRC Law, has continued the expansion of its team with the appointment of Graham Hansen (pictured).

Graham has joined the firm’s commercial team as an associate, specialising in commercial and consumer contracts, as well as related data protection and intellectual property issues. He trained and worked at TLT before moving to an in-house counsel role at Acenden and then esure, where he was responsible for advising on varied business needs and commercial contracts.

HRC Law’s latest appointment comes on the back of the firm’s impressive growth to date and is a response to their client’s increasing requirements for contractual and advisory specialist services which are increasing daily following the Brexit referendum decision and the imminent introduction of the new data protection regime, GDPR. This new data protection law will have a nationwide impact on all business and will apply from 25 May 2018.

Commenting on his appointment Graham said: “The current landscape provides so much opportunity for our clients who are ambitious and entrepreneurially-minded businesses. I was impressed with how HRC Law puts the client at the centre of everything it does and works in a seamless way. I’m looking forward to working with the excellent team to support clients in their growth.”

Managing partner, Simon Whitehead said: “One of biggest challenges is attracting the right people for our team and our clients. The very best legal talent that both matches our can-do culture, and who are prepared to understand our clients’ industries inside-out. We’ve found that in Graham and the rest of the team.

“The past 12 months have seen us hit many milestones – upscaling our offices and making some key strategic appointments, helping us to continue to deliver the high level of support to our clients and to achieve our ambitions for the business.”
