Introduction

Stefan is an established civil practitioner whose work covers employment, personal injury, clinical neligence, social housing and landlord & tenant. He has a wide range of experience in advocacy at all levels, representing clients who range from individuals to multinational businesses. Stefan offers incisive, to-the-point advice and a thorough and measured approach to litigation.

Solicitors have described Stefan’s preparation and delivery at court as “excellent” and commented that he “is extremely personable and manages to put the client at ease.” Feedback from lay clients includes: “Within my twenty years of dealing with a variety of lawyers, very few have come across the way that Stefan presents himself and his client, putting their interests and welfare first”.

Stefan undertook pupillage at 42 Bedford Row and has been a tenant since 2014.  Before coming to the Bar, he worked in the Property, Family & Trusts team at the Law Commission and as a visiting tutor in Property Law at King’s College London. Outside of work he plays the clarinet in a wind ensemble and enjoys cycling and attending concerts.

Housing

Stefan has particular experience of acting for social landlords and previously undertook a part-time secondment to a London local authority. He also takes instructions from legally aided clients.

His areas of practice include:

  • Possession claims based on rent arrears, anti-social behaviour, unauthorised occupation or subletting and procurement of tenancies by fraud;
  • Disrepair claims;
  • Homelessness appeals;
  • Cases raising issues under the Equality Act, human rights and public law.

Stefan acted for a local authority in a s.204 homelessness appeal where the Court held that the appellant’s 19 and 21 year-old son and daughter could not, as a matter of law, be treated as ‘dependent children’ when assessing ‘priority need’. See further here.

Stefan Liberadzki represents Employment Tribunal claimant who successfully establishes “employee” status for claim under the Equality Act

In EP v The Gym Ltd, the Claimant (referred to here as ‘EP’) was engaged by a nationwide chain of low-cost 24-hour gyms as a “freelance personal trainer”. His claim for disability discrimination arises from the Respondent’s termination of his contract on the grounds of absence from work, which he says was caused by a medical condition amounting to a disability.
