Simon Porter

Senior Associate - Company Commercial

Career History

I have a broad range of corporate and commercial experience gained over a 30+ year career, both in the UK and internationally. I trained and practised at leading City firm Slaughter and May and have worked at other City and regional firms. I also worked in-house at Hilton International and offshore in the Cayman Islands for a number of years.


I have acted for SME business owners across a range of industry sectors (hotels and leisure, aviation services and healthcare are highlights) on a variety of corporate and commercial matters. These include buying and selling companies and businesses, investment and fundraising rounds, corporate restructuring, advising on share incentive schemes such as EMI and unapproved options, commercial contract drafting and advice and work-out solutions.

What makes me human

I enjoy exploring the great British countryside in search of enjoyable food and ale at quaint and hospitable pubs. I've also inherited an interest in heritage railways from my now grown up son and also plan to travel to faraway places that I have not already visited.
