Meet the Team


Simon Horwood

– Litigation Executive

I have been in legal practice for over 25 years and am a graduate of Exeter University.  I joined Clarke & Son in 2014.

In my career in law I have dealt exclusively in general litigation matters; contract or other disputes, personal injury, clinical and professional negligence claims—both for claimants and defendants.  My approach has always been on a practical level to not only get to the core issues involved in any dispute, but also have regard for the larger picture whether that be in relation to commercial expectations or practical solutions.  The “best” outcome is the focus in every case and I never lose sight of my client’s objectives when delivering advice.

What I have learned over the years is that no two cases are the same. That is why I am passionate about the work that I do. It is always fresh and always challenging.

Away from work I enjoy time with my wife and three children.  I enjoy football, now regrettably only as a spectator, and consider myself to be a brilliant cook.
