Profile

Mark Stephens

Description

Mark Stephens says he was ‘tricked into being a lawyer’ by the manager of Pink Floyd, who was lodging in his family home when he was growing up. ‘He’s now a multi-billionaire and I’m a poor lawyer eking out an income,’ he jokes.

Perhaps the best-known reputation lawyer in the country, Stephens is just as comfortable on the This Morning sofa as he is undertaking high-profile human rights and intellectual property disputes. High-profile clients include Harvey Weinstein’s ex-assistant Zelda Perkins and Julian Assange as well as the governments of Jamaica, Libya, Mauritius, and the Russian Republic. He remains at the top of his game: his broad practice includes constitutional, human rights, IP, media and regulatory work, defamation, privacy, media, art and cultural property, data protection and freedom of information, trusts litigation, intellectual property, and international arbitration disputes.
