Speaking about his new role, Mr Conomos said that Pipers is a “long-established firm whose progressive and innovative approach complements my practice”.

“It has strong foundations and leadership contributing to its success. I was very impressed with the firm and its growth strategy and I am very excited to join,” he said.

Pipers managing partner Tony Britten-Jones said he was delighted to welcome Mr Conomos to the firm.
