Simon practises mainly in employment and commercial law. Simon was appointed Junior Counsel to the Crown in 2015 on the Attorney General’s regional panel for a period of five years. He frequently acts for both respondents and claimants in complex, multi-day employment tribunals and has an outstanding employment practice for a barrister of his call. His commercial practice covers contractual disputes, directors’ duties, unfair prejudice petitions, insolvency matters and possession. He was called to the bar in 2012.

Simon is a key member of both the commercial and employment teams at Exchange Chambers.
