Looking to gain first-hand commercial experience, he then took positions as in-house counsel at international companies operating in the financial services and chemicals industries. Subsequently, he returned to private practice working in leading national and international law firms, with the position of Partner at two firms.
Now with over 19 years’ experience working as a dedicated commercial lawyer, Stephen’s expertise supplements and enhances the business law and commercial consultancy services offered by Glenville Walker.
