Steve, who qualified as a solicitor in 1990, joined TSP in 1988 as a trainee (known as an Articled Clerk back then!). He leads the Litigation team, a team of some 20 people, dealing with Personal Injury, Clinical Negligence, Civil and Commercial Dispute Resolution and Employment Law.
Steve, who has been a Litigation solicitor for over 25 years, is local to the Colchester area, and attended the Colchester Royal Grammar School before going on to gain his Law degree at Leeds University. He studied for his professional exams at Nottingham Trent University and joined TSP as an articled clerk in 1988. He became a partner in the firm in 2001, and in 2006, when the structure of Thompson Smith and Puxon changed, he became a director of Steven J. Webb Ltd, a corporate partner in TSP. In January 2016 Steve was appointed Managing Partner.
Following qualification, Steve worked predominantly on cases involving Personal Injury but now deals with cases covering all aspects of both Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence. In particular, he has worked on a number of high value cases involving brain injury.
Steve says “ I have thoroughly enjoyed helping the victims of accidents for over 25 years. I have represented many thousands of people, some with relatively minor injuries and some whose symptoms have been life-changing. It is very rewarding to be able to solve some of the problems of people who are often at a low point in their lives. Financial compensation obviously does not take away pain and suffering but it is often crucial to the lives of the victim and his or her family.
I have also been privileged to be able to develop a team of high quality lawyers, currently seven of us specifically in the Personal Injury team, to support the increasing number of victims we represented.
Steve is a member of the Law Society’s Personal Injury panel and an accredited Personal Injury specialist. He has been a member of APIL (Association of Personal Injury Lawyers) since 1995. All of the Personal Injury Lawyers in Steve’s team are APIL members and two are APIL Senior Litigators.
In his spare time Steve enjoys playing golf, running and cycling and has a keen interest in cricket. He played regularly for the West Bergholt Cricket Club for a number of years, but nowadays (according to Steve) is better suited to watching rather than playing! However, he did represent TSP in the Solicitors v Auctioneers 100 Year Anniversary Match which took place in June 2014 at Castle Park, helping to raise over £5,000 for charity.
