With 17 years’ legal experience, Victoria Leadley has held a number of in-house roles, having trained as a lawyer with BAE Systems plc where she gained a valuable insight into business needs and was exposed to a range of legal disciplines, in addition to developing key commercial skills.

Victoria then spent almost ten years with a law firm in Newcastle upon Tyne as managing associate in its Commercial team, advising both private and public sector bodies on a range of commercial issues, as well as undertaking a number of secondments with businesses. She joins from British Engines where she spent nearly four years as legal counsel and compliance officer, providing legal advice to all businesses within the group.

Matthew Hattersley, partner and head of Clarion’s Commercial and IT team, says: “Demand for our services has continued to grow, based on the strength of our reputation, and Victoria’s expertise will be a valuable boost to the team. With her extensive track record in commercial roles, both in-house and within a law firm, she will add further strength in depth.”
