Stanley Saffer

Consultant Solicitor

Stanley is a senior solicitor with a broad range of experience in corporate work and litigation. He qualified in 1976.

In 1980 he became an equity partner in the firm of Trott & Gentry in Islington. He became managing partner, expanding it to a practice of some thirty employees and solicitors, and remained there until it disbanded in 2016. During that time he covered criminal and civil litigation and all aspects of property work including commercial and private conveyancing.

As the practice developed he became involved in commercial transactions, including the buying and selling of businesses and privately owned companies.

He became a qualified Mediator for civil disputes in 2006.

Since retiring from his own partnership in 2016 he now acts as a consultant to individual clients and firms.

Stanley advises on a wide range of areas, including commercial premises (buying and selling), property litigation, start-ups, partnership disputes, contract disputes, commercial landlord and tenant negotiations and disputes, and private property conveyancing. 

In his free time his hobbies are classic cars and yacht sailing.

I will always be grateful for your unwavering support of me. Equally, I will always be grateful for showing me how to find my voice and strength.

Title IX case against UCLA, client confidential

It was such a weight off our shoulders; suddenly somebody else with a lot more experience was managing the case.

Sandeep Mander, Mander v. Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead

We really thought that there was nothing that anybody could do for us. We were wrong.

Dr Celeste Kidd, Aslin et al v. University of Rochester et al

To get the result you got you must be as tough with your legal opposites as you are kind and understanding to your clients.

AOA client, confidential

Compared with other law firms I’ve worked with, no one matches the combination that McO has of experience, brilliance, ferocious fighting and deep empathy for their clients.

Dr Holly Atkinson, Atkinson et al v. Mount Sinai Health System, Inc. et al

Because my case could not bear public scrutiny, a very powerful institution used massive financial resources to try to crush me for asking for my disability rights. This was a huge mistake, as they didn’t know that I would obtain McO representation. I couldn’t ask for better representation.

I would like to say from bottom of my heart, thank you. Thank you to all the team. Now I can go and forget my former employer. God bless you all.
