At the same time, Paul Chiappe will return to JW as a partner and member of the senior management team. Paul – previously a partner with JW – left to become in-house legal counsel for Sunrise Brokers. Paul brings back to JW a reinforced and in-depth understanding of clients’ needs from his work as in-house counsel.
Sheldon Cordell – Chairman of JW said: “We all welcome Paul and David back to JW in just a few weeks’ time. They have achieved great things in their respective careers and they bring to the firm significant and interesting perspectives which will help us to continue to grow and develop as well as provide our clients with a broader range of services.”
David Greenhalgh of Twenty Twenty said: “JW is an established firm with a fantastic client base and a reputation for providing a first rate service to its clients. The combination of JW and Twenty Twenty will expand the firm’s employment practice and service offering to clients. The return of Paul Chiappe is very exciting as it gives us all a stronger platform on which to develop the firm.”
Once the merger is complete, the firm will operate under the name of Joelson Wilson and will be based in Portland Place, London, W1.
