Simon is a partner in the Employment Group at Eversheds Sutherland, a global, multinational law firm.

He has considerable experience of employment litigation and has a reputation in the marketplace for his discrimination law expertise: Simon has been responsible for a number of high-profile discrimination cases over the past ten years and continues to build this area of his practice. In addition, Simon’s contentious workload includes unfair dismissal, whistle-blowing and executive terminations.

In addition to his contentious practice, Simon also gives advice in relation to non-contentious matters such as the implications of the TUPE regulations in many different change situations, issues relating to proposals to change terms and conditions of employment and large scale redundancy exercises.

Simon is described in Chambers by sources as “sharp, on the ball and highly efficient”. He is a recommended lawyer in Legal 500.
