Simon, a partner in the Singapore office, provides advice and representation in commercial and treaty proceedings conducted under the rules of the major arbitral institutions and ad hoc, and in pre-arbitration dispute resolution processes. His practice has a particular focus on disputes arising out of large infrastructure and major projects involving disputed technical, delay, and quantum related issues.

Simon’s experience includes:

  • Representing the local subsidiary of a global contracting group in a dispute arising out of the construction of a significant healthcare facility in the Middle East, which centred on highly technical issues of electrical engineering
  • Acting for a French-German consortium in an arbitration arising from an agreement for the construction of a “first-of-a-kind”, new-generation nuclear power plant in Finland
  • Representing a European refining company in a dispute concerning a significant refinery upgrade project involving a wide spectrum of technical issues, ranging from deficient site preparation to post-completion defects, complex delay analysis and significant claims for production losses
  • Advising a European contractor in dual contractual and investment treaty arbitrations arising out of a “mega project” to expand a strategic maritime infrastructure installation
  • Acting for a European mining company in proceedings arising out of an expansion to a substantial wet-sands mining operation in an African country

Simon is described by The Legal 500 as a “rising star” and clients laud his “impressive ability to deep dive into highly complex, technical issues” and turn them into “elegant and powerful arguments”.

Simon holds an LLB (First Class Hons) and a BA (French). He is admitted and entitled to practice at both the Paris Bar as an Avocat and in England and Wales as a Solicitor. Simon is also admitted in New Zealand. He speaks fluent English and French.
