Biography

Simon is a partner and co-lead of Flint’s competition and regulatory team. He helps clients manage complex competition, regulatory and policy matters, drawing on his extensive background as a professional economist. Simon advises across a broad range of sectors, but has a particular focus on technology, media and telecommunications. 

Simon draws on nearly two decades’ experience of working in both the private and public sector. He is able to bring to bear a detailed knowledge of competition and regulatory economics, a deep understanding of the way in which governments and agencies make decisions, and insight into the concerns and pressures often faced by firms. 

Prior to returning to consultancy in 2016, Simon was a principal economist at Ofcom for eight years. During this time he advised on a broad range of competition and regulatory matters, including Competition Act investigations, regulatory disputes, charge controls, and policy projects in the telecoms (both fixed and mobile) and postal sectors. 

Simon has advised extensively on numerous competition matters in the EU and beyond, including in relation to UK and European merger control. He has also advised on abuse of dominance complaints and investigations at both national and European Commission levels. He has particular expertise in margin squeeze, but has also advised on discrimination, predation, excessive pricing, refusal to supply, exclusivity, and leveraging. 

Acting for both the investigating authority and operators, Simon has advised on a range of regulatory matters including complex pricing disputes, market definition, dominance assessment (including collective dominance), remedy design (both behavioural and structural), net neutrality, price controls, spectrum policy, auction design and universal service obligations.
