"The People’s Lawyer!" (his wife’s words)
A property solicitor with firm following from a broad range of clients and some of London’s finest agents, James is convinced that law firms need to ‘up their game’ in delivering services to private clients and is determined that Laurus will lead the revolution!
Laurus has been founded to deliver accessible legal expertise by highly skilled, motivated, and happy staff.
“Our clients are at the centre of everything we do. Transaction times need to be reduced, communication needs to be improved, clients need to know what is going on – and other professionals need to be fully engaged in every part of the process”.
As for pastimes, James recently retired from golf after the arrival of his son, Jack. He hopes to make a comeback, one day…

A pre-eminent family solicitor with a loyal following, Steven advises on a full range of children and matrimonial issues, including divorce, dissolution of civil partnerships, cohabitation and issues concerning children.
Steven excels in matrimonial finances, acting for high and ultra-high net worth individuals including those in business or media and has acted for a number of sports personalities in the Central Family Court.
Steven is well versed in problematic children matters, usually involving a cross-jurisdictional element or highly sensitive issues such as retention or relocation of a child/children.
An adept advocate who regularly works with some of London’s leading chambers, barristers do not hesitate to refer difficult or complex cases to him, given his outstanding reputation in the family field and high level of client care.
Clients value Steven’s commitment, perceptiveness, and his ability to explain and cut through complex issues to their core. He is highly regarded as being fiercely protective of his client’s needs and best interests which is reflected in his caring and responsive approach.
Having recently become a proud dad, Steven’s life outside of work is at home. He remains keen in golf and rugby (although mainly watching instead of playing these days).
