Simon Forshaw
Simon Forshaw is admired for his impressive advocacy style, and he has a strong reputation for his restrictive covenant and other High Court litigation work. He has a developing commercial aspect to his employment practice, assisting clients in disputes involving various allegations, including breach of fiduciary duty, fraud and breach of contract. He has further notable experience acting in major whistle-blowing and unfair dismissal claims.
Strengths: "His drafting is clear and concise, and he picks up the most complex facts and legal issues very quickly." "He is a guru for complicated matters, he is practical, he is extremely commercial and he is an outstanding advocate. I am always in awe of his methodical cross-examination technique, and I wouldn't want to be on the wrong side of it."
Recent work: Instructed as sole counsel to ISS Facilities in a case involving over 500 claims which arose out of a change in date on which employees were paid.
