Member’s News: New Partner joins Schofield Sweeney

Jan 10, 2024

Yorkshire-based law firm Schofield Sweeney has appointed Stephen Lewis as a partner in their litigation team.

Stephen has over 25 years of experience resolving issues and disputes for all sizes of businesses and private individuals.

“I am delighted to join a gem of a Yorkshire firm with a truly national outlook. I was instantly attracted to their “people first” approach to clients and colleagues and I’m looking forward to actively supporting the development of the business and its clients for many years to come.” Stephen Lewis, partner.

Stephen’s specialisms include commercial and contract disputes, material damage, product liability, professional risks, insurance policy disputes and volume damage recovery programmes (highways infrastructure, buildings and vehicles).

“It is great to welcome Stephen to the team at the start of the new year. He brings a wealth of experience across several sectors and demonstrates our commitment to continued growth and development into new sectors.” James Wood, partner.

Stephen has devoted a large part of the last 5 years to seeking justice and compensation for sub-postmasters affected by the Post Office Horizon IT scandal. He has overturned criminal convictions and secured several millions of pounds of compensation and is delighted that ITV’s drama ‘Mr Bates vs The Post Office’ has finally made the wider public aware of the ordeal many sub-postmasters have been through. He will continue to support those who have not yet claimed compensation for their financial losses or have not sought to clear their name after being prosecuted for theft or false accounting.
