As a founding partner of Lawrence Stephens, and with over 30 years’ experience, Stephen brings a wealth of knowledge to the firm in all aspects of Commercial and Residential Real Estate, as well as Landlord and Tenant transactions.
Stephen’s clients are a sophisticated mix of property companies, individual investors, property traders and trading businesses occupying properties for the purposes of their business as well as individuals. There’s no such thing as a typical deal. His transactions can range from the purchase or sale of a commercial investment, the refinancing of property portfolios, commercial lettings whether acting for Landlords or Tenants, complex acquisitions with lease re-gear and back-to-back sale, as well as residential transactions.
His clients are largely entrepreneurial, running their own businesses and seeking sound, speedy, creative advice and input from us as their solicitor.
Whether transactions are complex, urgent or routine, Stephen likes to work with clients in a commercial and pragmatic way to ensure a satisfactory and positive outcome. Many of his clients have been clients since day one, a testament to the quality of service and advice he strives to provide.
As a result of his exceptional work ethic and dedication to his clients, Stephen has been listed as a Recommended property lawyer in the prestigious Spear’s 500 list for 2023.
“Life is not all about work,” so Stephen says! He is a keen runner (half –marathons and marathons), having raised funds for various charities and is an active Freemason. He has been married to his wife Jane for over 30 years and they have three wonderful children, of which “none are following in my footsteps by pursuing a career in law. Maybe they’ll be clients of mine one day.”
"I have had the pleasure of working with Stephen and the team at Lawrence Stephens for over 10 years who consistently offer sound commercial advice delivered in an efficient and supportive manner."
