Prof. Stephen Mayson, Honorary Professor of Law, University College London
For 30 years, Professor Stephen Mayson has advised law firms around the world on issues of strategy, economics, ownership, and valuation.
He has a particular interest in the reconfiguration of the legal world being driven by competition and the Legal Services Act 2007, while maintaining a firm belief in the need for professional ethics and integrity in business.

As an adviser, Stephen has worked with hundreds of organisations around the world, helping them to make difficult decisions in times of structural or industry change.
