Hempsons

Work Department

Mental Health and Healthcare Litigation

Position

Stephen’s work covers some very technical legal areas but the overall theme is ‘dispute resolution’. He always looks for pragmatic solutions, without compromising your position. Where appropriate, Stephen’s advice on the law, options and risks will bear in mind any long term ongoing therapeutic relationship and that the resolution of acute problems needs to support, not undermine that.

In 2009 Stephen obtained his Master’s Degree in Mental Health Law. His final project brought together his mental health and capacity experience by considering the problems in developing the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards. Please contact Stephen if you would like a copy.
