Steven is senior and managing partner of Gard & Co. He qualified in 1983 and has since that time practised in Plymouth.
In the late 1980s Steven gravitated from general property work towards specialising in commercial property work and in particular in business transfers.
During the last 25 years he has been involved in the legal work associated with the transfer of most types of business, acting for sole traders, partnerships and limited companies based in different parts of the country, but particularly in the south west peninsula.
Steven is currently a Law Society National Council Member, representing the West Country and Gwent with specific responsibility for Plymouth and Cornwall. He is a past President of both the Association of South Western Law Societies and the Plymouth Law Society and was a founder member of Fastmove, a network of conveyancing firms determined to improve and shorten the conveyancing process for the benefit of consumers.
