Many more legal cases
Stephen has been a partner and head of the department at EAD since January 2000 and before that was a partner at Thompsons Solicitors. Stephen also spent 7 years working as an Employment Tribunal Judge, being based at different Tribunal centres. This work gave Stephen an insight into how cases are dealt with from both sides, and as well as representing clients, Stephen is also a well known trainer and guest speaker at events and conferences.
In relation to his work, Stephen adopts a practical and direct approach to his work for clients, always seeking to achieve a positive outcome. This might involve advice and strategic work and it might involve a negotiated outcome. Stephen has though pursued many cases to Tribunal hearings and undertakes almost all of his own advocacy, having a reputation for thorough preparation and for fighting for his clients. This is reflected in the many successful Judgments obtained for clients on a regular basis. Stephen deals with all types of employment disputes including dismissals, redundancies, discrimination and advice on Settlement Agreements.
Employment disputes usually involve conflict between the parties and you want someone who knows what he is doing, to give you clear advice and to be ready to fight your corner.
