Flint Bishop is pleased to announce the appointment of Simon Griffiths who has rejoined the firm as a partner in our Commercial Property team.

Simon arrives from Henry Boot PLC, a prominent Sheffield-based property developer, where he served as Head of Legal.

Over eight years at Henry Boot, Griffiths advanced from Group Property Solicitor to Head of Legal, managing the operational legal functions, leading the in-house legal team, and overseeing a multi-million pound annual external legal spend.

He was a key member of Henry Boot’s management team, where he led various group-wide projects aimed at delivering efficiency and change across the business.

The appointment marks a return for Griffiths to Flint Bishop, having previously been a key member of the Commercial Property team from 2007 to 2016. He brings extensive expertise in complex landlord and tenant matters, including acquisition, disposal, and development of commercial and residential sites, leases, and planning agreements.

Simon comments: “I am delighted to return to Flint Bishop and the vibrant city of Derby, a hub of investment in property developments. Moving back into private practice from an in-house role allows me to bring a unique perspective and valuable experience to our clients. Understanding the needs and challenges from both sides will enable us to provide even more comprehensive and strategic advice.”

Qamer Ghafoor, Chief Executive of Flint Bishop, added: “We are pleased to welcome back Simon to Flint Bishop who brings extensive experience in the real estate sector. I am confident he will be an excellent addition to our already strong commercial property team and will contribute significantly to the continued success of the firm.”
