Steve Penny was a founding partner of the business in 1990 when we were formerly known as John Collins & Partners. Now an Ambassador for JCP Solicitors, Steve was previously responsible for leading the business and focusing particularly on external relations with clients, strategic partners and other stakeholders. He held the positions of both Managing Partner and Chairman and although Steve will still fly the JCP flag, he formally retired from the business ownership in 2014 but stayed on as a consultant solicitor for some years after that. He is now an Ambassador for the business.
Described in the Legal 500 as "efficient, prompt and very responsive", Steve advised private business and public sector clients for over 25 years. Steve built an enviable reputation and we are often contacted by his past clients.
Steve has advised companies and other organisations on corporate finance, company and business disposals, acquisitions, mergers and joint ventures and commercial agreements, and has considerable experience in sporting/leisure developments as well as acting in relation to a number of inward investments in the area.
In 2011 Steve was appointed by Welsh Assembly Minister Edwina Hart to the Advisory Group examining the potential for greater economic development in Wales through a City Region approach and in 2014 Steve was appointed Vice Chair of the Swansea Bay City Region Board. Steve also held a board position in what was then known as the West Wales Chamber of Commerce, an active business network in the area at the time.
