With thirty years’ experience in Sydney commercial law firms, Simon has a breadth of knowledge which has served clients well in a number of areas. Simon has a consistent track record of resolving commercial disputes, both through mediation and through proceedings in the Supreme and Federal Courts. This has included extensive experience in the area of recoveries and insolvency in acting for insolvency practitioners, major creditors and trade credit insurers.

Wherever possible, Simon keeps his clients out of Court and out of trouble by making sure they have the right commercial terms in place and by calling in other expert practitioners when the situation calls for it.
