Profile summary

The Lawyer magazine has described Stephen as a leading property practitioner, a reputation he has earned in a legal career spanning over 30 years. During this period he acted in many high-profile commercial cases, but now devotes his time, energy and considerable experience to the mediation of commercial and property disputes, as well as conducting seminars on the subject. He is known for his proactive and patient style, which helps to defuse frequently stressful situations, and his ‘disarming charm’ which allows him ‘to both listen to and challenge the parties’ positions’. (Chambers Guide, 2012).
