Stephanie joined the firm in January 2019 and is an Associate within the Property Litigation division, based in Bromsgrove. She qualified as a solicitor in February 2015 after training at a niche litigation firm.

Area of expertise:

Stephanie has been named as a ‘key lawyer’ in the Legal 500 2023. She advises clients on a wide variety of both commercial and private property matters including disputes between both residential and commercial landlords and tenants, neighbour and boundary disputes, disputes over property ownership, claims for adverse possession, disputes over restrictive covenants, disputes over rights of way and claims for breach of contract and misrepresentation relating to property. She acts for both Claimants and Defendants.

Stephanie has developed a particular focus on commercial property disputes, working closely with Harjie Singh Bindra. The Legal 500 2023 edition remarks that she is “well-versed in contested lease renewals and disputes over service charges”.

She is also developing a growing practice in leasehold enfranchisement assisting clients with extending their residential leaseholds and/or purchasing freeholds.

As well as running her own cases, she assists more senior colleagues with more complex and high-value matters and supervises trainee solicitors in the team with smaller matters.

Stephanie is a member of the Property Litigation Association. She has also spoken at events for landlords relating to residential possession hosted by local estate agents.

Testimonials:

“Very responsive and acted quickly. Good advice and escalation."

"A slightly complex case transferred to MFG from a different firm, [Stephanie] was up to speed quickly and the case was dealt with professionally and efficiently. Communication with both us as clients and the third party was prompt and thorough, often anticipating and being fully prepared for the next stage. Highly recommended and have done so already.”
