Simon Camilleri is Of Counsel in Quinn Emanuel’s London office. He joined the firm in 2020. Simon’s practice focuses on high value and multi-jurisdictional commercial disputes. Simon has substantial experience of cases brought under the LCIA arbitration rules, as well as before the English Court. These cases have involved a range of matters, but very often involve allegations of dishonesty/fraud. He is experienced in the full range of injunctive relief often applied for in support of or resisted as part of such claims.

Prior to joining Quinn Emanuel, Simon trained and worked at a large global law firm, before spending six years at an international law firm headquartered in New York. Simon studied Law at King’s College, University of London, before going on to read for the Bachelor of Civil Laws at St. Edmund Hall, University of Oxford. Simon is the author of numerous publications in peer-reviewed journals focusing on the conflict of laws.
