Corporate and Commercial
At Stephens Scown, we’re genuinely passionate about business – after all, we run one ourselves. That’s why we understand that businesses need help at every stage of their journey, from launch, to expansion, to troubleshooting, to profit sharing and succession planning.
If you’re a small business, particularly a family-run one, there’ll be occasions when need to pick up the phone for an straight forward, no-nonsense legal opinion. The sort of help that allows you to make the most of the opportunities, but without exposing yourself to undue risks.
As a law firm with a strong South West focus, the breadth of our knowledge is impressive – and it’s not only us who think that. The Legal 500 industry bible confirms we ‘rate highly even compared to London firms’. Indeed, a number of our lawyers have City backgrounds. It is perhaps one of the reasons why we’re the lawyers of choice for three of the ‘dragons’ from TV’s Dragons’ Den.
We combine commercial insights with specialist legal knowledge – giving you the peace of mind you need to develop your business to its maximum potential. And with Stephens Scown, you’re always guaranteed the personal and professional touch – a winning formula for businesses at any stage of their evolution.

My first investment through Dragon's Den, which Stephens Scown played a big part in securing, has proved to be a tremendous success. Since that time we have continued to develop a pattern of working where Stephens Scown understands my investment requirements with a minimum of instructions. It is the nature of the TV series that a large number of the potential investments are time critical and Stephens Scown are always responsive to meet any deadlines.
