I’m a Partner in our Finance and Corporate practice group in Jersey and lead the firm's Financial Services team, working with colleagues in Jersey, Guernsey, Cayman and BVI.
I've been a Partner at the firm since 2000.
My financial services practice focuses on banks, financial institutions and other regulated businesses in Jersey, as well as private offices, cross-border businesses and transaction SPVs.
I specialise in providing advice on regulatory and AML issues, as well as business set-up, ongoing compliance and governance and restructuring transactions.
I worked closely with the Jersey financial regulator and Jersey government in the development of new regulatory regimes in the late 1990s/early 2000s, including the novel (at the time) regulation of trust company business which made Jersey a leader in setting standards in this area.
I have continued to be closely involved in the ongoing development of Jersey's AML and regulatory regimes ever since.
Simon is Recommended in Banking and Finance in Legal 500 UK.
