Simon enjoys guiding clients to achieve their desired business goals and taking a collaborative approach, working with clients and their other professional advisers and providing them with practical solutions. He takes pride in providing quality professional advice and service to help clients to obtain practical outcomes to challenging problems and plan strategically for the future.

When the GFC hit and banks got tough refusing to rollover finance for commercial property, Simon guided some of his small business clients in successfully dealing with banks that were aggressively seeking to take possession of their commercial properties. 

When commercial disputes arise or regulatory investigations are undertaken, Simon assists clients to reach a commercial resolution, rather than go down the path of litigation, which is expensive and time consuming for clients. His experience enables him to provide practical advice and solutions.
