About Us

Lawrence Stephens is more than a full-service law firm. We are your long-term legal advisers and partners. Serving a range of clients, we have experience working with large institutions on complex transactions, entrepreneurial businesses, and individuals on domestic and international matters.

Our skill set spans across several different sectors, with a particular focus on Real Estate, Real Estate Finance and Banking, Corporate and Commercial and Commercial Litigation. We continue to invest significant resources to help us work collaboratively with you, anticipate legal developments and provide advice at each stage of your growth.

We work on a cross-departmental basis and our approach to client advice includes delivering innovative deal solutions and industry and market knowledge, from initiation through to deal completion.

We like to form long-term relationships with our clients, working with them over years, and even decades because we appreciate that our clients want a firm that will be by their side throughout the lifecycle of their business. It is vital that our work with our clients evolves so that they can spot opportunities for growth, by managing risk, saving money and creating value. Our team will work with you to put all the pieces together.

Our objective is to form a true partnership with you, by putting ourselves in your shoes and keeping you fully-informed on your matters and deals throughout the process. We are available and are there when you need us.

Founded in 1997, in a single office just off Oxford Street, London, by Steven Bernstein, Lawrence Kelly and Stephen Messias. To date, the firm is growing apace. We now have 14 highly-skilled, client-oriented partners who lead teams that specialise in a range of practice areas, continuing to deliver the very best in integrated legal advice.
