SIMON BOND

The name’s Bond, Simon Bond. Much like the film character, Simon is an expert in his chosen field. With a lifetime of experience working in law, Simon has won justice for numerous sectors – but think gavel and courtroom, not explosives and Aston Martins. He protects his local community and enacts change; a saviour in a different sense.

Simon Bond has over 20 years’ experience as an employment lawyer, having held a number of senior roles with solicitors’ firms in the West Midlands.

Simon has extensive experience of conducting complex workplace investigations, including those involving fraud, discrimination and whistleblowing.

With particular experience of working for organisations within the health, education and charitable sectors, Simon regularly advises on large scale reorganisations, redundancy consultations and change management programmes.

Simon also sits as a Legally Qualified Chair at the Medical Practitioner’s Tribunal Service which makes independent decisions about whether doctors are fit to practise medicine in the UK. He is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators.

Throughout his career as a lawyer, Simon has been involved in serving his local community for wider public benefit: he was a trustee of both Sandwell and Birmingham Citizens Advice Bureaux. In recognition of his work with Birmingham CAB, Simon was voted Pro Bono Lawyer of the Year by Birmingham Law Society in 2012.

Simon is proud to be a Director of Black Country Chamber of Commerce.
