Expertise

Recognition

‘Very experienced, practical litigator’ Simon Morris, who heads the group, is ‘a safe pair of hands’.
The Legal 500 Asia-Pacific: Australia – Dispute resolution – 2021 edition

In Simon Morris I have been most struck by his pragmatic, unruffled way of approaching challenging situations. The quality of the work is very high from a legal analytical perspective, but what makes him a bit different from many practitioners is a strong and immediate practical sense of what the realistic range of outcomes will be in litigation. He has a very good feel for a case.’
