Simon is a commercial lawyer and a specialist in all aspects of employment and construction law. With a background in farming and forestry, he prefers a plain-English and practical approach to solving his client's legal issues.

Simon spent a decade practicising in an international and a local firm in Auckland. He has been based in Whangarei since 2017.

Simon helps clients with:

  • construction contract and project advice – from residential buildings to international projects
  • construction disputes – including defects, variations, payment defaults and delays
  • commercial employment advice – documentation, policies, procedures and restructuring
  • employment investigations
  • employment disputes, personal grievances, litigation and mediation
  • Health & Safety advice, documentation, post-incident and prosecution
  • general commercial issues e.g. Privacy Act protection, Fair Trading Act advice, and
  • Advertising Standards advice.

Simon grew up in Mangakahia. He and his young family decided to move home to Northland before his extended family could begin to call him an “Aucklander”. Outside of work Simon plays hockey and enjoys all the fishing, diving and spearfishing Northland has to offer.
