Business Adviser

Graham Stedman

Business Adviser

What gets me out of bed in the morning

Using my experience to help people. There are usually very few problems that haven’t been encountered before. If I don’t know the answer, I usually know somebody who can help.

An entrepreneur I admire

Steve Jobs. Now sadly no longer with us. He had his critics and reportedly was not the easiest person to deal with, but he made people believe in Apple and the things it stood for. Without him, Apple wouldn’t be the hugely successful company it is today.

The fine print

  • Key practices: Following a long career as a corporate lawyer, I became the senior partner of London based international law firm Nabarro LLP with responsibility for developing and implementing its strategic direction and representing the firm in the marketplace. While at Nabarro, I also established and was head of the firm’s highly successful Entrepreneurs Group dedicated to providing cost-effective legal services to the entrepreneurial community.
  • Education:University College London (LLB) and College of Law, Lancaster Gate.
  • Publications: (1) Denzil Rankine, Graham Stedman and Mark Bomer, Due Diligence, 2003,publisher: FT Prentice Hall, (2) Graham Stedman, Takeovers, 1993, publisher: Longman, (3) Graham Stedman and Janet Jones, Shareholders’ Agreements, 1st - 3rd Editions, 1986-1998, publisher: Longman, Sweet & Maxwell and (4) Richard Morgan and Graham Stedman, Computer Contracts, 2nd - 5th Editions, 1984-1995, publisher: Longman, FT Law & Tax.
  • Other Interests: Since leaving professional practice in April 2016, I have taken on a number of advisory roles and have a particular interest in strategically advising and mentoring small and medium-sized organisations both in the commercial and in the not for profit sectors. I am also a non-executive director, and chair of the remuneration committee, of LMS Capital plc, an investment company listed on the main market of the London Stock Exchange.
