Stephen, who qualified as a solicitor in 1993, joined TSP to head up the Commercial Property and Agriculture team in May 2011.

Stephen has over 20 years’ experience in Company and Commercial law and has a particular expertise in Commercial Property. Stephen’s wide-ranging knowledge and experience mean that he is able to advise clients on achieving their objectives across a broad range of business activities. He has helped client companies of differing sizes – from start-ups and family businesses to large PLC’s – and from many and varied business sectors, to achieve their business goals.

Stephen attended St Joseph’s College in Ipswich before going on to complete his Law degree at Nottingham Trent University in 1990. Having completed his Legal Practice Course at the College of Law, Guildford, he trained at an Ipswich firm, qualifying in 1993.

Stephen says “I am delighted to hold the Fellowship of the Agricultural Law Association. The Association plays such a very important role in bringing together leading practitioners in rural affairs from across the UK and Europe and provides excellent academic support to its Fellows and Members. As a practice TSP holds an annual Agricultural Law Workshop at its Colchester Office, hosted by Geoff Whittaker of the ALA, to which we invite our fellow professionals, such as Land Agents and Surveyors, who also serve local agriculture.”
