Simon has advised on dozens of disputes relating to banking and financial markets, including claims concerning securities issuances and trading (usually acting on behalf of groups of investors), derivatives and other financial instruments, bank support units, financial benchmark manipulation, banking fraud, and general commercial matters. Simon has represented clients in various Courts in England and Wales, including the Chancery and Queen’s Bench Divisions of the High Court, and the Court of Appeal. He is experienced in alternative dispute resolution, particularly mediation and arbitration (under various rules).
