Steve is a highly experienced corporate and commercial lawyer with in-depth understanding of business issues, having been the Chief Executive Officer of two businesses. During his tenure as the CEO of a leading aerospace business, the company valuation increased from £6m to £100m, so he fully understands all the challenges and obstacles faced by growing businesses.

Steve has a particular focus in working with start-up and other growth companies, businesses in the aerospace and defence sector and technology companies. In 2021 he acted for a tech-sector issuer on a €150 million IPO and for an aerospace company on a $200 million pre-IPO equity line.

Steve also has significant non-contentious experience in the insurance and wider financial sector.
