It is with great sadness that we announce that Martin Smith, formerly the Head of our EU, Competition & Regulatory practice, has passed away following a period of illness.
Martin was associated with our firm for over 35 years: he completed his Articles at Simmons & Simmons in 1981, became a partner in 1986 and made an enormous contribution to the firm and its clients until his retirement in 2013.
He held a number of management positions within the firm and was a well-respected specialist in the competition field, recognised as a knowledgeable and first rate practitioner throughout his career.
Martin is remembered with great affection by his colleagues at the firm and we send our condolences to his family.
