About Us

About Stephens Scown

In a rapidly changing world, we give our clients the edge.

Giving you the knowledge to make better decisions

Our people deliver practical, expert advice to help you make informed decisions and achieve your objectives. This is based on a deep understanding of your needs and a commitment to building long-lasting relationships through the good times and the tough times. It’s a refreshing approach to law, built on a culture of knowledge, innovation, and a relentless focus on our clients.

Putting your interests first

We have evolved from a traditional law practice to become the UK’s first large employee-owned law firm. This level of employee engagement makes us different, building upon our strong foundations, allowing us to deliver exceptional added value. Every employee has a vested interest in ensuring the needs and interests of our clients come first, while giving the very best professional legal advice. Our clients are assured of a straightforward, agile, modern and innovative approach to helping them achieve their aims.

South West based, with nationwide coverage

Based in the South West but with a client base that stretches across the UK, our flexible and innovative way of working enables us to bring the very best professional legal expertise to our clients wherever they are. No wonder legal industry bible Chambers describes us as a ‘dominant force’ in the marketplace, and we feature in The Lawyer magazine’s prestigious Top 200 law firm rankings.

Committed to giving back

All our people are committed to looking after our clients and supporting each other. We genuinely care about our people, our clients, our community and the environment. What really marks our people out is their commitment to the ethics and values on which Stephens Scown is built.

Employee ownership: there’s no place like Scown

Stephens Scown is the first large law firm in the UK to give all eligible members of staff an equal share in its profits. In a sector which has traditionally seen partners alone share in the profits, it is a move which has attracted interest from across the UK – and not just from within the legal profession.
