Steffan Groch

Partner // Head of Regulatory, Manchester

Steffan heads up DWF's national Regulatory team as well as leading the firm's 'go to market' sector expertise. He is also Chair of the UK Health and Safety Lawyers Association.

Experience

His specialist subject is crisis management, specifically dealing with the media and handling regulators following serious incidents. He works across the Construction/Infrastructure, Insurance, Road haulage, Food, Oil and Gas sectors providing expertise in health and safety regulation as well as compliance training and audits.

Steffan has been at DWF for 14 years and works on a national basis. In his role as Head of Regulatory he leads the firm's Crisis Response Service, which is designed to provide clients with a legal service incorporating media advice and employee well-being. This aims to protect clients' reputations when they are in the middle of a crisis situation.

He is commended in the Legal 500 directory and in Chambers and Partners (2012) as 'Best in UK'. Chambers also states that I have an "exceptional legal mind," while maintaining a "calm and understated manner."

He chairs the UK Health and Safety Lawyers Association which results in my being asked to attend Select committee hearing, speak at national conferences and liaise with governmental advisors on policy development.

Steffan has worked on many ground breaking precedent setting cases, in particular R v HTM, R v Porter and R v Lion Steel.

As well as trying to look after his clients to the very best of his ability, Steffan also enjoys cycling and horse riding, recently trying his hand at polo and drag hunting!
