Philipp Simon joins Ely Place Chambers

Ely Place Chambers is delighted to announce that Philipp Simon (2004) has become a member. In addition to his English qualifications and experience Philipp is qualified in Germany and Luxembourg and retains his links with the German and Luxembourg Bar by virtue of being a partner in MMS Avocats, a Luxembourg based law firm with a representative office in Düsseldorf, Germany.

Philipp is able to accept instructions concerning German and Luxembourgish law and can call on infrastructure in both jurisdictions thus offering a more efficient legal resource in the increasing number of cases that require cross-border expertise. As a result of his international expertise, Philipp has advised former cabinet ministers of Luxembourg’s government on European Competition Law matters and is commended in the Legal 500 EMEA in the “Corporate and Mergers and Acquisitions” category as “strong on strategy and negotiation”. In 2013 he became an Accredited Mediator.

We believe that Phillip’s arrival adds to our existing ability to offer legal services in the increasing number of cases that involve more than one legal system and look forward to a long and successful relationship.
