Schofield Sweeney appoints litigation partner

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.

Stephen commented on his appointment. He stated: “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.”

James Wood, partner at Schofield Sweeney, expressed enthusiasm for Stephen’s appointment. He commented: “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.”

Stephen has devoted his time 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.

ITV’s drama ‘Mr. Bates vs The Post Office’ has finally brought the ordeal to the attention of the wider public. He will continue supporting individuals who have not yet claimed compensation for their financial losses or who have not taken steps to clear their names after facing prosecution for theft or false accounting.
