Partner and solicitor within the employment team, Simon also leads the firm's cross departmental Social Housing Practice Group
Partner and Solicitor
Simon is leader of Tozers LLP’s cross departmental Social Housing Practice Group which acts for a majority of the South West’s registered social landlords. He is an employment lawyer who specialises in conduct and capability dismissals, particularly where the DDA is engaged. He helps employers manage consultation processes on changes to pension contributions, closure of schemes, member migration and individual employee allegations of misrepresentation following scheme changes.
Because of his involvement as a board member and chair of several not for profit organisations he frequently advises boards on issues of governance and corporate responsibility and deals with senior management issues of trust and confidence, often involving the chief executive.
“The sheer variety of the work is what makes employment law so interesting. The more experience you have, the more options you can suggest to your client and above all what I try to do is clearly and simply explain the risks and provide perspective which can be invaluable when as an HR Manager you are focussed on the process.”
Simon is editor of the Tozers quarterly employment law newsletter, and co-ordinator and editor of the email newsflashes. He is a regular presenter at the bi-annual employment law seminars, and is regularly invited to speak at conferences.
Simon has been recognised in the Legal 500 2018 legal directory in which he has been noted for his ‘deep industry knowledge’ and ‘friendly and accommodating service’.
Simon qualified as a solicitor in 1981.
