Partner

  • He is very careful and led a huge and difficult case in a very successful manner. There's been a lot of pressure and he's handled it expertly
    Chambers & Partners Global Guide 2018

"The Cayman Islands is an extremely sophisticated, competitive jurisdiction and the practice of its laws, whilst challenging, is very rewarding. I am honoured to have grown and led our Cayman Islands dispute resolution team since April 2015. We aim to bring a fresh, innovative approach to providing our clients with added value to the normal legal services that they would otherwise expect from any other top tier law firm on the Island."

Stephen heads up the dispute resolution department of Collas Crill in the Cayman Islands. He is an experienced partner with a demonstrated history of advocacy and the practice of corporate and commercial litigation, with an emphasis on the offshore insolvency and restructuring of companies.

Stephen's practice has a strong focus on company law including corporate insolvency; schemes of arrangements; capital reductions; shareholder disputes; director's liability; international asset tracing; the enforcement of foreign judgments; worldwide Mareva injunctions, Anton Piller orders, and Norwich Pharmacal orders. Stephen has significant contentious litigation experience arising from the representation of both liquidators, shareholders and creditors of companies and hedge funds including, the claw back of fraudulent conveyances and undue preferences; allegations of investment fraud and investment manager disputes.

Since his appointment as partner in 2015 to lead and grow the Cayman Islands dispute resolution team, Stephen has grown the team from two to seven lawyers, all with a strong background in insolvency and restructuring matters. Prior to joining the firm Stephen spent two and a half years in Miami as a member of a boutique litigation firm in the United States which focused on cross border insolvency and trust disputes. 

Stephen was called as an advocate of the High Court of South Africa in 2003 and has subsequently qualified as a solicitor-advocate of the High Court of England and Wales and a solicitor-advocate of the Supreme Court of the Eastern Caribbean.  Stephen was called to the Cayman Islands Bar in January 2009. Stephen is ranked in Chambers and Partners.
