Our firm was founded in London in 1983, as Stephens & Associates, or S&A for short. Since that time we have focused on the provision of legal and business advice to our clients in relation to the international growth of their companies.
We operate mainly within the fashion and sports sectors, covering such areas as international strategy, franchising & distribution, licensing, e-commerce, data protection, marketing and branding, intellectual property rights and litigation management. We act primarily for brand owners but also for local distributors, licensees and agents.
Our desire is to focus on a small number of successful businesses and by doing so to be able to more effectively understand and cater to each of their needs.
