Company history and information
JPC Law is the product of a merger between Porter Crossick and the Private Client, Litigation and Trust and Probate departments of Roiter Zucker. Since our launch in 2007, we have built a reputation for professionalism and expert advice. In 2009, we increased our presence when we were joined by the practice of Sherman Phillips. This has increased the scope of our practice to expand in the areas of Insolvency and International Law.

Steven Porter qualified ostensibly as a litigator and therefore has the advantage of understanding both the contentious and non-contentious aspects of commercial property law. He is comfortable dealing with all aspects of landlord and tenant matters and is not phased where property transactions become contentious.
He has over 35 years experience and during that time has dealt with a variety of businesses most notably restaurants, shops, light and heavy industry.
Derek Payne is a partner in our Residential Property Department. He handles a broad spectrum of property work, based upon a core of conveyancing of residential and commercial properties. He acts for a wide variety of clients from private individuals and offshore investors to corporate entities and developers. It is important to Derek that his clients understand every stage of the transactions which they are involved and are kept updated. This means he provides a very personal service, combining efficiency with a no nonsense approach that has made him very popular with clients.
