Richard Stephens

A technology lawyer of more than 20 years experience, Richard has seen the IT industry from all sides – as an in-house lawyer with two substantial UK based systems houses, a lawyer within a top-rated City practice, and now as the head of his own practice.

Richard has been involved in some of the largest IT litigation and transactions in this country and in his own practice is especially concerned with outsourcing agreements, and gets involved in major re-negotiations of large deals. Richard is also a qualified mediator in the realm of IT and intellectual property disputes, and more recently has started in practice as an arbitrator.

Richard is a well-known IT lawyer, is rated as a "leader in his field" by the Chambers Guide to the Legal Profession, and at the end of last year stepped down after two years as Chairman of the Society for Computers and Law.
