Introduction

Steven is first and foremost a Property Lawyer. However in recent years his commercial practice has developed significantly, particularly having regards to Professional Negligence and Partnership Law, having recently succeeded in the Court of Appeal in the case of Cheema v Jones & Others [2017] EWCA Civ 1706.

Steven has many reported cases in the Court of Appeal, High Court, Upper Tribunal but still ranks his visit to the House of Lords in the case of London Borough of Tower Hamlets v Begum as the highlight of his professional career.
