Simon has experience of all aspects of valuations, particularly with reference to business valuations in connection with transactions and disputes, Purchase Price Allocations and intellectual property valuations. He has focused recently on spectrum licence valuation for mobile operators, has spoken at conferences on this topic and has written a paper on the subject titled "Timing is Everything - Releasing the value of Spectrum".
