Former Chairman and CEO Radley + Co. Former VP for Europe, Reebok
Stephens have been a business partner of mine for over 20 years – firstly in my capacity as GM for Reebok Europe where my association was mainly with Mel Stephens, the founder. The legal service Mel provided was legendary throughout Reebok’s international network.
More recently my interaction has primarily been with Tony Stephens, whose commercial acumen and speed of response are exceptional. At Radley we have used Stephens as our ‘in-house’ legal advisors, covering the full scope of UK and international activity. Their advice and problem solving are highly respected by all senior executives in the company and they have made a significant contribution to the growth and development of Radley since 2006.
Since leaving Reebok in 2002 I have never hesitated to recommend Stephens to companies I have worked with. At Silver Cross, where I was a non-executive Director, Stephens helped solve some difficult distribution and IP issues both here and abroad, where their local contacts throughout the world proved invaluable.
The experience of Stephens over a full spectrum of successful international consumer brands, combined with their high level of service and empathy, makes them an ideal legal partner for any developing company.
