Stephen was called to the bar in 2008, entering practice as a barrister sole following a short stint in the public service. After practicing as a litigation solicitor from 2009 to 2011, Stephen returned to sole practice focusing on criminal and civil litigation.
Stephen's practice now primarily covers civil and commercial disputes, with criminal briefs considered on a case by case basis.
Stephen grew up in Pukerua Bay, on the coast just north of Wellington. He has traveled extensively, and is developing a more global practice, having traveled to London twice as counsel in an International Arbitration, and represented clients from around the world.
Outside of the law, Stephen can either be found pursuing one of his entrepreneurial endeavors or hobbies, which see him off the grid to recharge from time to time.
