New associate solicitor joins the firm


Wollen Michelmore LLP is pleased to welcome, experienced dispute resolution and litigation solicitor Simon Bean to the firm.  Simon joins as an Associate Solicitor and will be based in the firm’s Torquay office.  Simon is a specialist commercial disputes and employment lawyer

Simon qualified in 2003, and practised in the field of commercial dispute resolution and litigation at Michelmores LLP in Exeter, before heading up a litigation team at a substantial Somerset / Dorset firm from 2011.  He returned to Devon in 2014 to join a well-established regional firm, where he helped develop the litigation practice there.

Simon’s appointment will further strengthen  the commercial, dispute resolution and employment services that Wollen Michelmore offers to businesses and individuals alike.

On joining Wollen Michelmore’s team , Simon commented “Practising law in the field of disputes allows me to think creatively about difficulties that people and businesses encounter and how to help them come up with practical solutions so that they can focus on running their businesses.  Often, the personalities of the people involved are a key factor in what solutions can be found – no two disputes are the same, and I enjoy the variety.  Wollen Michelmore has a fantastic reputation for providing first-rate advice and service to local clients and SMEs at fair rates.  It’s a great and happy team, and I am very excited about playing a part in developing their range of services.

When he is not out helping clients, Simon enjoys cycling and spending time in the beautiful Devon countryside with his wife and two children. With his love for living and working in Devon, Simon shares the same core value of Wollen Michelmore who pride themselves as the ‘Devon Law People’.

Wollen Michelmore are very pleased to have Simon on board and feel he is the perfect fit for the firm. Chris Hart, Chief Executive of Wollen Michelmore, expressed ‘We are delighted to welcome a solicitor of Simon’s experience and calibre to the firm and trust that he will further strengthen our civil litigation and dispute resolution offering across the practice.’
