Simon joined CWD in 2013. His career started in the Commercial Litigation department of one of the larger firms in the City of London where he was involved in a number of high value claims. Since then he has also gained valuable experience working in-house where he held roles including Legal & Compliance Director and Company Secretary for a well-known retailer.
Simon is passionate about Dispute Resolution and manages 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 advises on commercial contracts and brand/reputation management issues. Simon’s clients range from entrepreneurs to FTSE 250 multi-nationals (and everything in between) in locations from New York to Newcastle.
Away from the office, Simon is married with one daughter and engages in a number of pastimes including cycling and playing the guitar (when no-one is listening).
