Simon is a talented civil and commercial litigator in our London office, he is a ranked lawyer in The Legal 500 and supports the firm's established leading practice in the blockchain space. He is also active in the firm's media and reputation management practice. As of 1 March 2022, he was promoted to the role of Managing Associate.
“From the moment I was first interviewed with ONTIER in April 2019, it was clear that this firm doesn’t just pay lip service to growing and harnessing internal talent, but actually does so. Many of our associates joined the firm as paralegals before completing their training contracts and remained with us here, following qualification. As a lateral hire, there is always an additional point to prove; not only that you have the necessary aptitude, but you both complement and enhance the team you join. It’s wonderful knowing that the respect and regard you hold for your team and firm is reciprocated."
"I am proud to be part of a team where – from partners to paralegals, and business support – everyone punches well above their weight. That level of cohesion filters through and benefits our clients, who can see that we get results, both efficiently and effectively."
"I’m looking forward to helping the firm grow the size of both our team and our client base, so that we continue to be the go-to-firm for the high profile and ground-breaking actions, which we are known for.”
Managing Partner, Derek Stinson comments:
"We act on complex cases and Simon has proven he can handle anything before him. He also dedicates himself to his clients and is determined to see through his cases to the end, forever promoting his clients’ interests. He doesn’t back down and can be a fierce opponent. We are blessed to have him as part of the team and know he will be here a very long time."
