Simon Bloom aggressively advocates for his clients in a variety of complex litigation matters. Specializing in the real estate industry, he regularly represents developers, builders, property owners and brokers throughout the Southeast in workout and lender liability litigation, landlord/tenant disputes, and all types of real property disputes. Lately, his practice has focused on negotiating and counseling borrowers and guarantors through workouts with and litigation against their lenders. Simon makes it part of his law practice to provide a high level of personal attention to his clients so that he understands their challenges and goals, and contributes to their long-term interests as a trusted business advisor.
In 2007, he left his post as leader of the Real Estate and Construction Litigation Group at Powell Goldstein to found Bloom Sugarman Everett, so that he could provide the same high quality service from a more specialized platform. Growing from two to nine attorneys in just two short years, Bloom’s firm now encompasses a wide range of civil litigation, including employment, restrictive covenant, product liability, class actions and partnership disputes. With a client list that reads like a Who’s Who among Atlanta’s real estate, Bloom Sugarman Everett provides aggressive, strategic advocacy that gets results.

He has been named a Georgia Super Lawyers’ Rising Star for four consecutive years, Georgia Trend Legal Elite, was chosen as an “Up and Comer: Top 40 Under 40″ by the Atlanta Business Chronicle, and in 2009 as one of 12 lawyers “On the Rise” by the Fulton County Daily Report.
He frequently writes and teaches about trying cases and real estate litigation at seminars and CLEs throughout the Southeast, and is an adjunct professor at Emory University, where he helps teach the pre-litigation clinic.
In recognition for the extensive time and energy he devotes to children’s causes, Governor Sonny Perdue recently appointed Simon for a second term to the Governor’s Commission on Public Service and Volunteerism. Governor Purdue also appointed Simon to the state board of the Department of Community Affairs, where he currently serves as secretary.
