Stephen is the Head of Dispute Resolution. He has a wealth of experience dealing with complex commercial disputes in the High court and in particular the Business and Property Courts. He acts for a variety of UK and international companies as well as high net worth individuals with cases encompassing areas such as technology sector disputes, product liability claims, intellectual property, breach of trust, corporate and shareholder disputes and injunctive relief.

Stephen’s approach is to gain an understanding of the client’s business and the underlying issues facing the products or services involved in the dispute and the client’s key drivers as this is equally as important as the legal issues in play.

Stephen is a member of the Society for Computers and Law and is a CEDR qualified mediator.
