Simon advises on a wide range of regulatory, risk, governance, compliance and commercial issues that arise in the increasingly complex, changing (and challenging) regulatory environment. He has experience of regulatory frameworks at both local and international level, assisting clients with development of new products and services, forensic investigations and providing assurance and best practice guidance.
Following qualification as an English Solicitor in London, Simon returned to Jersey to work for a local law firm and subsequently a local trust company business. During this time he developed his experience in the financial services industry and to a variety of legal, regulatory and commercial issues that arise in companies, trusts and other legal arrangements.
An enquiring mind coupled with a progressive and practical approach means that Simon gains deep understanding of client business and focuses on core issues. His role carries the privilege of observing how various businesses are managed and operated from board to administrator level with a client base including governments, regulators, charities, regulated and unregulated businesses.
Recent work has included advising an African country on its regulatory framework, investigating a global enterprise concerning money laundering and corruption, advising a significant business on governance and risk management and establishing a philanthropic structure.
