Stephen is a real estate and projects lawyer with 20 years experience in structuring and delivering large and complex public/private regeneration and development projects. He specialises in advising Universities, Local Authorities and other public sector bodies, and advises on the complex range of issues that affect large scale real estate and development schemes.

Described by Legal 500 as "intellectual and entrepreneurial", Stephen’s role is to bring together multi-disciplinary teams in a way that is insightful and energetic. He works collaboratively with a project management approach, linking and co-ordinating a wide range of legal and commercial services to ensure that risks are managed and outcomes achieved. Managing the interfaces with the varied commercial, educational and social objectives of the client, its advisers and stakeholders form a key part of his role.

Stephen was recently elected as an honorary Fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and believes that success depends upon commercial understanding, coupled with a solution-orientated, collaborative and flexible approach.

"We’re delighted to be at the beginning of a partnership between two teams who share the same winning spirit and focus on supporting talent to achieve their potential. Everyone here has a great sense of pride and excitement to be working with Team England – a team that, after all, reflects just how much can be achieved by a diverse and varied group of individuals all focused on one goal. We can’t wait to get started."
