Before joining Wordley Partnership, Simon was a partner in a leading international insurance law firm for over 25 years. He has worked in the insurance sector for more than 30 years.
Simon’s focus has been “hands on” dispute resolution, whether acting for insureds or (re)insurers, where early identification of the issues, the commercial imperatives, and workable strategies is key.
He has successfully handled numerous complex claims, advising on coverage and defence issues, in a wide range of insurance products, internationally and domestically, including most third party liability and specialist lines, as well as Trade Credit. He has particularly enjoyed working on broker and MGA related issues
Whilst Simon has handled cases in most dispute forums, he is happier if he can reach commercial solutions and help to maintain the business relationships, whether by negotiation or mediation, formal legal adjudication being the last resort.
