Paul Stafford

Paul Stafford is a property lawyer with a particular expertise in manorial rights and mineral rights. The work is mostly advisory in nature nature and of very significant complexity, and he receives enquiries and instructions from clients across the globe. He also sits as chairman of the National Disciplinary Committee of the Conservative Party, dealing with complaints against party members from local level to very senior political figures with household names.

His practice over three decades has focused on long and complex disputes, often with a multi-jurisdictional element, of a chancery and commercial nature. These include property and trusts of land, ecclesiastical law, professional negligence, and building and civil engineering (particularly those involving local government). His early career as a Junior Research Fellow and Lecturer in History at Oxford University has helped him develop an expertise in manorial rights in the context of modern land registration. Professional regulation, particularly the dishonesty of solicitors and financial regulation, is another specialist area.
