Property law

Landlord and tenant

With the benefit of more than 20 years’ experience of property transactions, Stephen is able to focus on what is important and not dwell on those aspects which are more routine. This can help speed up transactions and identify sticking points early on, before they become problematic.

He combines the pragmatism, patience and perseverance necessary to see any transaction through to its completion with the eye for detail which you would expect from a lawyer.


Stephen believes in building long term relationships with clients. Over the years he has worked for clients such as Siemens, EDF Energy, RM Education and Oxford Brookes University amongst many others.


Stephen qualified as a solicitor  in 1993 and prior to joining Plainlaw had roles at Veale Wasbrough, Brookstreet des Roches and Manches.


Notable transactions:

  • acting for EDF Energy Nuclear Generation Limited on land transactions for new nuclear power station Hinkley Point C;


  • acting for EDF Energy Nuclear Generation Limited on option for wind farm operator to take a lease of land adjoining Sizewell B Power Station for electricity sub-station;


  • acting for Oxford Brookes University on multi-million pound disposal of property to a language school; and


  • acting for Siemens Real Estate Limited on an intra-group transfer of 50 properties.
