As counsel in our banking group, Simon focuses his practice on real estate finance transactions. He has experience acting for banks, borrowers and funds on a wide range of real estate finance transactions which has also included advising in the context of both solvent and insolvent corporate restructurings.

Simon has undertaken secondments at Thames Water, The Royal Bank of Scotland and Barclays Bank - with this, he has gained a valuable insight into the business needs of these institutions and others like them and a broader understanding of how he, and Hogan Lovells, can continue to provide pragmatic, hassle free and top quality legal counsel.
