Simon joined the firm from the Silicon Valley office of White & Case, a leading international law firm, where he built a successful career in commercial litigation, data compliance, technology law and appellate practice. He has represented a broad spectrum of leading corporations in the software, technology, healthcare, accounting, real estate, banking and legal industries.
Recognizing the growing need for advanced legal and compliance counsel related to technology, social media, electronic information compliance and intellectual property protection, Simon decided to join the firm out of his commitment to provide clients with the high-quality representation and personalized attention they deserve.
Simon graduated magna cum laude, Order of the Coif, from Northwestern University School of Law in Chicago. He was appointed to the editorial board of the prestigious Northwestern Law Review, which published his scholarly article about federal jurisdiction and preemption. He was also a member of Northwestern’s National Moot Court Team, where he received significant recognition for his exemplary speaking skills. During law school, he also interned for two district court judges – the Honorable Patricia Seitz in Miami and the Honorable Ruben Castillo in Chicago – as well as the United States Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Illinois.
After joining White & Case’s Miami office in 2005, Simon left the firm for one year to clerk for the Honorable Stanley Marcus, Circuit Court Judge, on the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals, where he was honored to support the Court’s decision-making in all areas of federal law. After returning to White & Case’s Miami office for several years, he relocated to White & Case’s Silicon Valley office in Palo Alto, CA, where he focused on cutting-edge legal issues related to information technology, including data security, copyright, trademark, patent, and trade secrets.
Simon earned his undergraduate degree in accounting, with a minor in economics, graduating with highest honors from the University of Florida’s top-ranked Fisher School of Accounting.
Simon is committed to the firm’s philosophy of community service. Throughout his career, he has generously donated his time as a member of both the Florida and California Bars, handling pro bono legal matters related to public housing, public corruption, immigration, and tenants’ rights.
