Stephen Rimmer qualified as a solicitor in 1975 and become a Partner in another firm in East Sussex. Stephen founded Stephen Rimmer & Co in February 1981. Initially the only other members of staff were his wife, Isabel, and his mother.

The firm quickly became established and initially Stephen dealt with all aspects of legal work. As the firm expanded his area of work became more specialised and over the last thirty years or so he has dealt with commercial property and development work together with a small amount of residential conveyancing for personal contacts. Stephen has particular experience of dealing with company sales and purchases and the drafting of commercial documents.

Until 2010 Stephen remained the Senior and Managing Partner at the Firm and played a central role in its development to what it has become today. In 2010 Stephen decided that the time had arrived for him to step aside as the Senior Partner and relinquished his role and became a Consultant to the firm until 2020.

Stephen is proud of what the Firm has become, approaching one hundred personnel, and has confidence in the present partners and team to continue to develop and improve the Practice in the years ahead.

Outside of work Stephen’s interests include golf, boating and swimming, cycling and chess. He has a season ticket for Brighton & Hove Albion but his football team is from his home city of Liverpool. Stephen speaks fluent Spanish and has property in Spain.
