“Simon and I worked together at Dewey Ballantine. Simon was an energetic, enthusiastic colleague who made a valuable contribution to marketing and communications for the firm. I enjoyed working with Simon.”

“Si has a rare combination of skills. He has a real flare for strategic communications allied with what can best be described as being a digital marketing genius. Unlike many “marketing types” he cuts through the fluff to the strategic business issues and helps his clients find quick and cost-effective ways to achieve their business goals. He has an incredible ability to spot solutions and opportunities and solves what appear to be difficult challenges with the simplest of solutions. If you are a Managing Partner / CEO of any firm, I know that it is worth devoting an hour of your time to hear what he has to say.”

Simon Russell – COO, Fladgate
