Whether it was as a non-exec (UKELA and Argyll), a client (Certa) or a joint advisor he is always thoughtful, knowledgeable and willing to think outside the box and innovate. He has always been a pleasure to work with and I'd always be happy to recommend him.

You have been an enthusiastic, extremely knowledgeable and dependable partner in over 50 Debates, attracting a multi-faceted audience, which is continuing to increase.

I worked with Stephen when he was the Legal Director at Certa (UK) Ltd. I acted for many clients who required insurance for environmental liabilities in relation to contaminated land, waste disposal sites and other activities. Certa shook up the environmental insurance market in the UK in the 1990s and made it a viable market. Stephen played a pivotal role in Certa's success. He was able to combine a strong legal expertise, attention to detail, commercial acuman with strategic insight. Many of the transactions I was involved with would not have been possible without Stephen's engagement, drive and energy.
Anthony HobleyExecutive Director, Mission Possible Platform, World Economic Forum
I have known Stephen since the 1990s. He has the rare gift of being both an excellent lawyer and a sound and innovative entrepreneur. He also has a genuine commitment to protection of the environment, sustainable business and the synergy between the two.
