As Executive Chairman of HHG Legal Group, Simon’s focus is on firm growth, leading the pro bono practice through HHG Giving Back, growing the firm’s mediation and Family Law practices, special projects, the firm’s international association Primerus, and his media and complementary board roles.

Since being admitted to practice in 1998, Simon’s impressive career has been consistently celebrated. In 2017 he was named Western Australia Lawyer of the Year by the Law Society of WA. In the same week, HHG received the Attorney General’s Community Service Law Award, largely due to Simon’s creation of HHG Giving Back, the charitable arm of HHG Legal Group. Simon has also been an Australian Law Award and Australasian Law Award finalist two years in a row, receiving runner-up for the 2015 and 2016 Managing Partner/Director of the Year and Legal Innovator of the Year awards.

In 2008, Simon won a 40Under40 Business News Award, in part for his role in growing HHG Legal Group from eight staff members to fifty in four years.  From there, Simon led HHG to either win – or be runner up – for 14 state and national awards including the Rising Stars award in 2010. In 2016 Simon became a Nationally Accredited Mediator, allowing him to extend his services to all levels of alternate dispute resolution. Simon is happy to mediate any type of dispute, with or without the parties having legal representation.

Highly regarded by the legal industry, Simon was elected to The Legal Practice Board of Western Australia in 2011 and re-elected in 2013. He sat on the 2010/11 Council of the Law Society of Western Australia, and is a member of the Law Council of Australia and the Family Law Practitioners Association of WA. He is also a founding member of Collaborative Professionals (WA), a Fellow of the Australian and New Zealand College of Notaries, a past member of the Brief editorial committee of the Law Society of Western Australia, and a Member of the AICD. Simon has been published in numerous professional publications and presented at the Australian Property Institute, Rotary, and Australian Legal practice on family law and financial planning.

He is the past Editor of several chapters in Halsbury’s Laws of Australia and regularly presents to accountants, financial planners and private bankers.
