          Stephen Green

          Partner // Head of Real Estate Litigation

          Stephen heads the firm's Real Estate Litigation team across the North East, Yorkshire and the Midlands.
          He spent 15 years in the insurance industry before taking up private practice in 1996. He has extensive experience as a general commercial litigator, but has specialised in property litigation over the past ten years.

          Stephen provides advice on all aspects of property litigation and both commercial and residential landlord and tenant law, including service charge disputes, dilapidations, the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954, commercial lease renewal, repossession, trespass and nuisance, adverse possession, lease termination (to include contractual breaks) withholding consent and boundary disputes.

          He acts for both landlords and tenants as well as developers and housing associations. He is a member of the Property Litigator's Association and the Dilapidations Forum.

          He is described by the Legal 500 as being "noted for [my] expertise in commercial landlord and residential landlord and tenant matters" and in Chambers as "providing a prompt response to all instructions and [having] a commercial approach".


          Outside of work, Stephen supports Rugby League and plays the drums to a professional standard.
