We provide flexible cost-effective support for busy teams, so you can focus on more important things

Pragmatic and commercial – no nit-picking 



We work alongside well-established in-house legal teams in demanding, fast paced businesses both in the UK and internationally.

We know a lot of in-house teams are stretched and need the right support from their external lawyers. We’re familiar with the unique demands placed on in-house legal teams, because we have been involved in those roles ourselves. 

We know it’s not just about stating what the law is, but giving the business the advice and tools it needs to make the best decisions. No jargon, just simple explanations of how the law will impact your commercial decisions, while offering alternative choices and a wider strategic perspective.

Helping to identify the real legal risks 



Many law firms are happy to provide a lengthy note describing the law, leaving you to decipher the answers and decide how to move forward. We prefer to find out the concerns of the wider business, help you to identify the real risks and deal with them pragmatically. 

‘Stephenson Law provide maternity cover for our Group Legal Director – Data & Technology. We explored several options for the cover but concluded that SL’s flexible and personable approach was the best option for us. They were quickly able to integrate themselves into the team and get to grips with some key strategic matters. I would have no hesitation recommending SL to anyone looking for maternity cover.’
