Steven is strategic employment law advisor, working closely with clients across a number of sectors including financial services, life sciences, technology and manufacturing. Steven has developed a particular focus on supporting financial institutions with their strategic people issues including navigating sensitive grievances and conduct related matters; defending high stakes litigation; the legal, commercial and PR aspects of major staff transfers and reduction in force exercises and supporting board executives and HR with the people aspects of both internal and regulatory investigations and inquiries.

Having spent time working in-house with major financial institutions, Steven understands the need to dovetail employment law compliance and HR best practice with the fast-evolving regulatory landscape. He also understands industry nuance and can bespoke his advice to different clients depending on where they fall on the regulatory spectrum. Most importantly Steven brings pragmatism, creativity and a healthy sense of humour to the table when working with clients on business-critical matters.
