Tony V.

Steven and our office worked together to provide one of his clients with one of our in-house Dutch royalty structures. He provided his client with an excellent understanding of the technical aspects of a Dutch royalty structure and he also provided his client with an enormous amount of legal support that was required to implement an international royalty tax planning structure. Steven also worked directly with our office for many years to provide ongoing legal support services for his client. Steven is a highly qualified international lawyer and he provides his clients with lots of expertise, dedication and commitment. We highly recommend Steven for international legal services.

Susan R.

Steven Conybeare has assisted us with all our contractual and intellectual property rights matters for several years now. I find the attention, integrity, advice, research and opinion offered by Steven second to none! And find it hard to imagine an alternative that would have travelled this path with us in such a supportive manner. 

Stephen D.

I have instructed Steven on a range of corporate issues over the past few years and he has always been a reliable source of advice for me. He is a lawyer who is both easy to get on with and professional in his dealings, which gives me great confidence to rely and trust his judgment. He knows how to properly understand our requirements, to explain complex concepts in simple terms and to protect our business interests. We have depended on him to guide us through complex legal transactions from start to finish, helping us to hold our own in negotiations with professional investors using an international US law firm. I am happy to recommend him as a lawyer to anyone who wants to be sure of the best outcome.

Akos B.

With lawyers it really helps if they are good and you like them. If you think the same, Steven is your man.

Roderick C.

Having known Steven for a number of years, it is an easy task to highly recommend him both in a professional capacity and trusted friend. Together with Steven we have targeted a number of real estate acquisition targets in a JV investment structure across CEE, which he proved able to add considerable value to with respect to his experience and proactive approach to execution. I, like many others I'm sure therefore look forward to the opportunity of working together more in due course. 

Patrick W.

Steven was recommended to me by a large international investment bank. After working together I did not hesitate to recommend him to colleagues/friends and have worked with him again since. He is extremely detail orientated, has extensive subject matter knowledge and delivers on time irrespective of time zone.

Natalie W.

Steven has been beneficial in concluding numerous high value and complex Oil and Gas related agreements including, but not limited to, Joint Operating Agreements. He provided me with great assistance in negotiating and concluding the successful sale of a subsidiary of a NASDAQ company to a major European operator. Steven’s pragmatic approach to addressing complex matters invariably yields a well considered and constructed solution, amenable to all parties. He delves deeply into the problems yet delivers in a timely manner. He is more than reliable and can always be counted upon when time constraints are imposed. His attention to detail in his business dealings is tempered by an otherwise gentle personality making him a welcome and valuable addition to any team.

Travis W.

I had the opportunity to meet Steven as a result of a recommendation made by a large Law Firm. He was very diligent in helping me to set up a contract that really took care in detail of my interests against some tough Israeli Lawyers. As a result he was later engaged by the same lawyers to help them in business negotiations here in Hungary. I have since got to know him as a person and I it gives me pleasure to invite him to social events as he always brings with him his larger than life Humour. He has also jumped in with lots of enthusiasm and support for two charity foundations I am involved with when I asked for his help.

Adrian G.

I'm recommending his service to every company who needs legal advise especially in regards of hydrocarbon industry in Europe or Eastern Europe. As a small independent oil and gas exploration and production company we use his service in case of any legal matter like preparation of joint operation, establishment of joint company, taxing and service procurement. With his experience he is able to bridge Eastern and Western European companies when there is any kind of contracting action taken.
