What others say about Stephen

"Stephen Boyd mediated an acrimonious and difficult dispute recently. It was a partnership dispute between family members over property worth a few million pounds.  He was courteous, able and focussed. Stephen was able to build a rapport with the parties to ensure that enough trust was built so that a settlement was reached.  I was impressed with Stephen's grip on the issues and the fact that he went the extra mile to make sure that heads of terms were agreed. I would certainly use Stephen again for mediation": Gary Blaker QC.
