With a unique background in politics, diplomacy and law, Simon has played a critical part in shaping some of Australia’s biggest reforms and business decisions. From multi-billion dollar international arbitrations to small litigious matters, his sharp focus on discerning the issues has earned him a reputation for getting results.
Within the political sphere, his strategic advice helped the Every Australian Counts campaign to successfully cement the NDIS into Australia’s political landscape; he successfully lobbied to reform Special Disability Trusts to make them more accessible; has internally lobbied to ensure the passage of LGBTIQ anti-discrimination measures; and has undertaken significant work within the refugee advocacy space.
At the state political level he helped steer changes to usher in ridesharing in Victoria, helped coordinate the successful campaign to trial a life-saving supervised injecting facility and has provided strategic advice on politically sensitive major redevelopments.
