Simeon read Law with French at Leicester and Strasbourg universities, qualifying as a solicitor in 1992.

With both contentious and transactional insolvency expertise, Simeon advises insolvency practitioners, banks, distressed companies and individuals in a wide range of both corporate and personal insolvency matters. His corporate transactional work has an administration bias with the preparation of business sales being a particular specialism. In personal insolvency matters, Simeon has a specialist European Regulation practice, advising individuals, practitioners and creditors on the application of the European Regulation and what is known as COMI shifting or bankruptcy tourism.

Simeon has edited and written works on Company Meetings in insolvency proceedings and the disqualification legislation for directors. He also lectures to insolvency practitioners and lawyers both in England and abroad on procedural and substantive elements of insolvency law and practice.

Having been a member of R3 for many years he was delighted to be elected to Council and now serves as Chair of the Smaller Practices Group.

Simeon Gilchrist knows his stuff and he's always sensible and pragmatic.
