How he got here

Interview with
Robert Metcalfe

What is it about Simplex that made you want to join?

The Simplex model allows me to practice law with flexibility in my schedule and the
virtual nature of many mandates allows me flexibility in my location as well. I was
mentor to Martine in her early career, so I should feel confident about her legal
acumen and judgement!

How do you think the Simplex model allows you to make a difference for clients?

I enjoy the singular focus on the client company which affords me the opportunity to get to know the business at a deep level. I think this is a recipe to deliver timely,
quality advice.
