A bit of history

Stephen was articled to a firm in the West End and then moved to the City, before founding Bishop & Sewell with Jill Sewell in 1979. Jill retired in 2004.

Stephen’s career, starting in the 1970s – has seen him specialise in residential property and related transactional work. It is with good reason that Stephen’s name, which we are proud to share, is such a recognised and trusted one with other solicitors and professionals practising in this area.
