Who runs the Contract Company?

About Us

The Contract Company was founded by Anna and Simon in 2011.

Simon Zarifeh

I once had a client say in a negotiation that ‘Simon can spot a contract issue at 500 yards whilst riding a horse backward at night in a snowstorm’. It was a very nice thing to say, but not quite true…I can’t ride a horse.

On any given day I would look at between 1 and 10 contracts, and I have been a lawyer for many ‘days’ (since February 2000). So maybe my client referred to above was right. In any event, if its contract-related I know I can help.

When I am not surfing the fine print I don’t mind the odd spot of fly fishing. In fact, most of the photos on this website come from one outdoor adventure or another.

If you need a contract gone over with a fine-tooth comb then I am the person for the job. I once saw a drafting error on a contract in the CBD whilst doing a bridge climb on the Sydney harbour bridge. Nothing abnormal about that… visibility was good that day and the range was just over 1km.

I have worked on 1-page contracts right up to one monster that was over 750 pages long. (Needed a trolley to get that from the printer to my desk). Experience with contracts isn’t just about understanding what’s in a contract but also having a good idea about which clauses the other side could move on and how much they could move. The knowledge that comes from experience.

A swim or a bike ride will easily pull my head out of a contract.
