Wallwork was formerly head of the corporate department at Pannone LLP. He has 20 years' experience advising clients such as Windpower Wales, Lectus Therapeutics, Amaze and BiOxyDyn.
Semple Fraser's client base includes Eden Springs, the Glenmorangie Company, LVHM, Peel Group, Lhoist UK, Land Securities and Ayrshire Power. The company has other offices in Glasgow and Edinburgh and opened in Manchester one year ago.
