Simon joined CWD in 2013 but is no newcomer to the law having been in practice since 1998. He began his career in the Commercial Litigation department of one of the larger firms in the City but in recent years has been working in-house where he held roles including Legal & Compliance Director and Company Secretary for a well-known retailer.
Simon’s passion is Dispute Resolution and he deals with a wide ranging caseload including defamation, intellectual property, professional negligence, employment and contractual disputes. Whilst always seeking a swift and amicable solution, Simon is equally at home obtaining/defending emergency injunctions where necessary in order to protect his clients’ interests in matters such as civil fraud proceedings.
Simon also undertakes commercial work for some of his clients and often advises on commercial contracts and brand/reputation management issues.
Outside of the office, Simon is married with one daughter and attempts to keep fit by cycling. He can occasionally be seen on the golf course, albeit most of the time is spent hunting for balls he has hit out of bounds.
