Simon McLoughlin
Call: 2009

Simon’s practice covers all areas of Commercial Chancery litigation and arbitration.

Simon is recommended in both the leading legal directories. Chambers & Partners (2023) notes that “Simon provides excellent advice which is to the point and succinct while also dealing with all of the necessary detail…[He] possesses an extremely sharp academic intellect yet also has outstanding commercial awareness.” and “…is a real team player who is great with strategy and advising on tactics.” The Legal 500 (2023) describes Simon as “Client friendly with good attention to detail” and having “…the ability to process large quantities of complex information with seeming ease. An old head on young shoulders, he is a barrister of choice by a long way.”

Simon regularly appears as an advocate in the High Court (Business & Property Courts) and in arbitration. He has particular expertise in disputes involving the consideration of valuation, accounting and other technical expert evidence.
