Simon Bishop specialises in commercial litigation with a focus on disputes in the financial services sector. 

Before training as a solicitor, Simon worked in derivatives and structured products for some of the world’s most prominent financial services institutions, including Morgan Stanley and State Street. The technical and industry knowledge gained during that time unquestionably benefits his clients. Having been in-house, he also appreciates the commercial pressures and competitive business climate.


As a solicitor, Simon has advised on dozens of disputes relating to interest rate derivatives, 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 also experienced in alternative dispute resolution, particularly mediation and arbitration (under various rules). During his training, he volunteered at various pro bono clinics and the Citizens Advice Bureau.


His clients include hedge fund managers, small and medium-sized enterprises, publicly listed companies, firms of solicitors, insolvency office holders and lobbying groups.
