In this episode of The Crafty Show podcast, Ben White, founder of Crafty Counsel sits down with Simon Duffield, Lead, Legal – COVAX, at Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance.  

Simon shares his professional journey, which began with a career in London as a trainee at Linklaters, where he stayed for over 11 years. In 2019, he then made the move to Switzerland and in-house to join Verisure as Group Corporate & Transactions Counsel. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Simon joined Gavi to support the global distribution of COVID-19 vaccines.  

Simon reflects on the pandemic, its impact, and his unique role as a lawyer actively working to ensure that vaccines reached those in need during a time of unprecedented crisis. He also discusses the excellent work that Gavi does and its global impact, which has led to the immunisation of over a billion children through various programmes over the years.
