More than 20 years’ experience in the music, media and management sectors persuaded law firm Thomson Snell & Passmore to hire Peter Jones to their employment team.
The senior associate has worked in employment law at Rawlison Butler LLP and has held in-house roles with the British Medical Association and a major health insurance provider.
Having begun his career as a sound engineer, Mr Jones transferred to the legal profession more than two decades ago.
