Steven Porter


Steven qualified as a solicitor in 1979. In 1996 having previously run his own practice he joined forces with Stephen Crossick to form Porter Crossick where he remained joint senior partner before the creation of Jaffe Porter Crossick LLP of which he is a founder member.

Steven is also a CEDR Accredited Mediator and able to assist parties in resolving disputes cost effectively.

Summary of Work

Steven qualified ostensibly as a litigator and therefore has the advantage of understanding both the contentious and non-contentious aspects of commercial property law. He is comfortable dealing with all aspects of landlord and tenant matters and is not fazed where property transactions become contentious. For many years he has dealt primarily with commercial property whilst still retaining an interest in property litigation and in particular dilapidation disputes and Landlord & Tenant matters. 

He has over 35 years experience and during that time has dealt with a variety of businesses most notably restaurants, shops, light and heavy industry.

In addition Steven has also developed a specialism in Housing Association Law and has drafted the standard documentation used by a number of large high profile registered social Landlords particularly in the areas of development and leasing.

Steven heads our Property Department.

He takes a holistic view of his clients and their businesses.
