Having qualified in 2001, Simon developed a niche client base, specialising in the representation of companies and directors engaged in litigation and the development of their business. He is the head of the litigation department here at Aticus Law, supervising a team of experienced litigators. Previously he worked for the same Manchester practice for 15 years before leaving to develop his relationships with existing clients.
Simon’s most recent achievement is successfully obtaining what is believed to be the first injunction against the Department of Business, Industry & Skills in relation to unlawful investigation into a client company. Amongst current matters being litigated by Simon and his team are a range of mis-selling claims against the banks, which currently have a combined claim value in excess of £100 million.
