Stephen Acton

| Call 1977

Profile: Insolvency

Experience and Expertise

As a company law specialist, Stephen has a long-standing expertise in corporate insolvency. Having developed a keen interest in company law at Cambridge, and undertaken a pupillage in a specialist company law set of chambers, in those early days Stephen also lectured in company law at Holborn Law Tutors (where he re-wrote their company law manual). Stephen has since then maintained his expertise in corporate insolvency. He was in at the ground floor when the administration regime was introduced. In addition, he rapidly extended his practice into personal insolvency, and has practised extensively in both areas throughout his career.

Stephen has acted for office-holders, companies and individuals subject to insolvency proceedings, and creditors. His approach is always thorough, and his advice practical and commercial, informed by his extensive knowledge and understanding of the subject-matter. As a litigator, Stephen is exceptionally tough and robust when the occasion demands, but always realistic. He is as effective in mediation as he is in court.
