Having qualified as a solicitor in 2014, Simon joined Joelson in June 2017, from a Silver Circle law firm.
Simon has experience acting for a diverse mix of clients – from entrepreneurs and SMEs to FTSE 100 companies – and on a wide range of disputes – from smaller claims to £100m+ big-ticket litigation. He has litigated in County Courts, the Upper Tribunal, the High Court and the Court of Appeal.
Before practising law, Simon spent a year making a living playing poker. He therefore has a particular understanding of, and interest in, the gaming industry.
Outside of work Simon spends his time on his bike, playing the guitar and trying to hone his DIY skills (though not at the same time).
