What others say…

I have been dealing with Stephen since 2018 and have always found him to be professional and well organised. He distils what is complicated litigation, that has aspects unfamiliar to the client, into a clear understandable project. He has kept me well informed of progress along the way and has shown plenty of initiative in pursuing our claim.

Michael O’Hara, Group General Counsel, Glanbia (Ireland)

Stephen very quickly gained a good understanding of our business, which enabled him to ask insightful questions and in turn facilitated prompt commercially focused advice. A real team player!

Scythia Cross, European General Counsel, Pilgrim’s Pride

Stephen dealt diligently and meticulously with a very difficult royalties dispute for us. He was a key person in the very successful outcome that was achieved, and his determination and hard work proved invaluable.
