Simon heads up DLA Piper's UK Technology Disputes practice which consists of a team of six Partners and over 20 other lawyers across the national practice dealing with the full spectrum of technology, telecoms and outsourcing disputes. He is also a co-lead of DLA Piper’s International Technology Disputes practice.

Simon regularly works closely with the firm's leading non-contentious technology and outsourcing team and his work ordinarily involves him acting on business critical and flagship digital transformation projects where the emphasis is as often on risk management and dispute avoidance as it is on more formal dispute resolution.
