Steen & Co Employment Solicitors' aim is to provide a quality alternative to the employment law departments of large firms of solicitors. We only provide employment law advice.

Our clients range from multinational corporations and quoted companies to small and medium sized enterprises, non governmental bodies, executives and high net worth individuals.

Clients mainly come from recommendations and in fact in 2005 over 80% of new clients used us as a result of a recommendation from an existing client. We also receive referrals from accountants and management consultancies and, for marketing purposes, make use of Google.

Please note that Simon would always like to hear directly from like minded and experienced employment lawyers who are interested in a job.

Simon Steen

Simon is a solicitor with well over 20 years' employment law experience. He formed Steen & Co Employment Solicitors in 2002. However, he undertook his first tribunal in 1989 when he was an in house lawyer dealing with employment law. He has worked solely as an employment solicitor ever since. His experience includes 5 years working in house as legal adviser to a company which at the time was in the FTSE 100. In 1995 Simon joined and later became a partner in a large regional firm where he was recognised in the Legal 500 as a noted employment lawyer 'with a sound reputation in employment law'. In 2000 he began working for a very large London firm of solicitors as a senior employment lawyer and set up Steen & Co Employment Solicitors in 2002.

He has a background in computer science and law and is a member of the Employment Lawyers Association. As well as being a qualified solicitor Simon also qualified as a barrister in 1989. Simon plays football and volleyball enthusiastically but badly, drives old and really old cars and doesn’t understand why people drive new cars.
