Simon is a group partner within the dispute resolution team in the firm's Jersey office.

"Even in the most complex matters my approach is to ensure that sight of the big picture is never lost. Every single step must be taken with the ultimate objective borne in mind. The world is moving at an increasing pace; this naturally demands a readily available and responsive lawyer who can make reasoned decisions quickly."

Since joining the firm in 2008, Simon has developed a practice focused on high value commercial litigation, asset tracing and cross-border insolvency in both a contentious and non-contentious context. He is able to draw on multi-jurisdictional litigation and alternative dispute resolution experience having worked in our Cayman Islands' office for three years.
 
Simon has extensive advocacy experience, appearing regularly before the courts of Jersey and the Cayman Islands. 

He is a keen public speaker and has a particular interest in directors' duties, shareholder disputes and cross-border insolvency. He is a member of the Legal & Regulatory Committee of the Association of Restructuring and Insolvency Experts (ARIES).
