Stephen is Head of the Commercial Real Estate and the Social Housing teams at Pannone.
Stephen specialises in advising on acquisitions and disposals of commercial property, complex estate management, and lease work and acts for a wide variety of private and public sector clients including individuals, charitable bodies and local, national and international companies.
Stephen has a particular interest in development, regeneration and housing. Stephen’s work includes working with developers on the acquisition and funding of sites for residential and mixed use development and advising on complex funding agreements for residential and wider regeneration schemes. His clients include private sector developers, social housing providers and the Homes and Communities Agency.
Stephen heads Pannone’s Social Housing team and has been a non-executive director on the board of Central Salford URC since the company’s inception. Stephen served as Chair of the Company’s Audit Committee and was also appointed a member of the Transition Committee which had responsibility for the orderly winding down of the URC following the withdrawal of public sector funding. This work evidences Stephen’s personal commitment and interest in the regeneration of this City region.
Stephen is also a member of Pannone’s Nominations and Remuneration Board and for many years has played a major role in graduate recruitment within the firm.

Best career moment: There have been many highlights, including the Pannone Real Estate team being awarded 'Property Team of the Year' at the Manchester Legal Awards in February 2011. I think my best highlight, however, was acting for Urban Splash on the development and funding agreements for the regeneration of Park Hill in Sheffield when we worked with our client, English Partnerships (now HCA), Sheffield City Council and the respective legal teams to make sure that very complex development and funding agreements for the multi-phase regeneration of one of the largest listed buildings in Europe were completed before Christmas 2006. The teams worked many days and nights to achieve the completion of the documentation in a very collegiate way despite the time pressures which we faced.
Examples of Stephen’s work include:
- advising on the development and letting of new build residential care facilities in the region
- advising on long term building leases for the development of new phases of high technology tenanted units at Manchester Science Parks
- advising Hay Group on the acquisition of its new HQ premises in London
- advising on a multi party scheme for the sale of a heavily contaminated site for mixed use development
- the acquisition of distressed residential and mixed use sites such as Issa Quay in Manchester
- advising HCA on a complex funding agreement for a key regeneration project in Blackpool
- advising developers on HCA funded schemes, such as Kickstart funded sites and NAHP funded new build developments
Stephen has chaired seminars and given lectures to lawyers, surveyors and contacts on topics such as acquisitions and build out of development sites, landlord and tenant and environmental law.
Stephen regularly gives careers advice to school students and is a Foundation Governor of a Salford City Council primary school.
Stephen qualified as a solicitor in 1995 and became a partner in 1999.
