Steen & Co Employment Solicitors is a specialist firm of employment solicitors

Experienced employment law solicitors who act for both executives and companies.

We are a quality firm of solicitors dealing only with employment law. Our aim is to provide a quality alternative to the employment law departments of large firms of solicitors. Our clients range from multinational corporations and quoted companies to small and medium sized enterprises, non-governmental bodies and executives.

Unlike other 'city' type firms we aim to act for both executives and companies. In fact, some of our company clients use us because we have extracted their chairman or chief executive from his or her previous job. About 80% of new clients choose us as a result of a recommendation from an existing client, and we always appreciate such recommendations. We also receive new clients from accountants and management consultancies.

Simon Steen

Simon Steen


Simon is a solicitor with over 30 years' employment law experience. He did his first employment tribunal claim in 1989 and has done nothing but employment law since. Simon originally qualified as a barrister on advice that that was the best route to becoming an ‘in-house lawyer’. He then became an ‘in-house lawyer’ for a company which, at the time, was in the FTSE 100 and he was there for about 5 years. Later, he decided that the commercial cut and thrust of private practice as a solicitor was more his style so he re-qualified as a solicitor. 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 lawyer "with a sound reputation in employment law". In 2000 he began working for a very large London firm of solicitors but set up Steen & Co Employment Solicitors in 2002 and has been growing his practice ever since.
