Stephen Willmer took degrees in history from King’s College London and political science from the LSE and in 2004 was Called to the Bar with the assistance of a Middle Temple Queen Mother scholarship.

He has for many years been public access qualified, and has developed a wide-ranging practice representing businesses, individuals and sometimes public authorities. Stephen’s preferred approach is to try to get under the skin of a case early on, in the belief that this will save costs and prevent client misery further down the road. His advice is candid but courteous and he likes to think his advocacy follows the same pattern. Where appropriate he has been known to devote significant time to trying to persuade clients not to get involved with the legal system but is a firm believer in the dictum that ‘forewarned is forearmed’ – in other words, if assistance is needed then it is best sought early.

His practice has evolved to focus on the areas listed below, albeit there are frequent overlaps with each other and with other areas of law. His work is contentious and non-contentious.

In his spare time, Stephen is a keen amateur cook and is trying to learn how to play golf and how to box. He reveres the music of J.S. Bach and enjoys esoteric and genre literature.
