Stephen Hockman QC has specialised in all forms of regulatory law for approximately the last 30 years. He is a leader of exceptionally high standing who has a broad environmental, health and safety and planning practice encompassing judicial review, inquiries, arbitration, civil claims and criminal prosecution and defence work.

Stephen has a varied client base, including corporates and individuals, regulator and (alleged) polluter, and he is equally at home undertaking effective cross-examination as in sustained legal submission at any level of tribunal. His particular strength lies in the breadth and varied nature of his practice. He is able to draw on his extensive experience in his specialist areas of regulatory and health & safety law, civil and commercial law, and planning and environmental law to provide a unique service in complex and high profile litigation.

Stephen is recognised as one of the leading practitioners in the fields of Health and Safety Law and Energy and Natural Resources. His practice also encompasses in particular environmental law including making and resisting public law challenges to environmental decisions, appearing for claimants/defendants in environmental cases in the common law courts, for example nuisance, and prosecuting and defending in major pollution cases.

Stephen’s practice incorporates too a significant element of local government work, and he has appeared for and advised local authorities in every part of the country on a regular basis, on issues such as town and country planning and internal governance.

Stephen is highly recommended by the leading UK legal directories in the areas of Environmental Law and Health & Safety Law. He was nominated as Health & Safety Silk of the Year at the Chambers UK Bar Awards 2019, as Real Estate, Environment and Planning Silk of the Year at the Legal 500 UK Bar Awards 2015 and as Silk of the Year in Environment/Planning at the 2014 Chambers UK Bar Awards. He is listed in the Who's Who Legal UK 2021 list of leading barristers in environmental law. He is also named in the Best Lawyers in the UK (2019 edition) list for Environmental Law. He was awarded the title of "Most Influential Regulatory Law Specialist 2018 - UK" in Acquisition International’s 2018 Global Excellence programme.
