Experience

Throughout his 25 year legal career, Stephen has been a “go to” lawyer on contentious and non-contentious insurance and commercial litigation matters. The first 8 years of Stephen’s career was in the City of London where he was trained in the City law firm of Taylor Joynson Garret (now Taylor Wessing) and subsequently Clyde & Co.

Stephen is a skilled and tenacious litigator with extensive experience of handling a broad range of commercial litigation matters, including complex contractual disputes and defending high value professional negligence claims across three of the firm’s key industry sectors of maritime, real estate and healthcare. His practice focuses on local UAE Court proceedings and ensuring clients have access to the full array of strategic and tactical advantages available therein. 

Stephen advises and acts for the local and international clients of several international law firms- unable to appear in UAE Courts- as well as several local underwriters and large trading entities. Stephen’s clients include Hashoo Group- active in the energy and hotels and leisure sectors, NMC Healthcare- the UAE’s largest private sector healthcare provider and Qatar Insurance Company- one of the UAE’s leading local underwriters.

Stephen has been working in Dubai since 1998 and has previously worked for Clyde & Co and DLA Piper . He has utilised his 17 years professional experience in UAE Court proceedings  and has acted as an expert witness in UAE law, practice and procedure in Court proceedings in England, Canada and the United States.

Stephen broadcasts, writes and lectures widely on UAE- centric legal topics including medical malpractice law -an area in which he is regarded by many as the leading practitioner in the jurisdiction- and which is seeing a period of extended growth in UAE.
