Stephanie Zak


Commercial Law

About Stephanie

I am an experienced property lawyer and Partner working in the Commercial Property Department; however, first and foremost I help people prevent and solve their legal problems.

Qualifying as a Solicitor in 2010, I have enjoyed a varied career in commercial law, property law and associated practice. I can assist clients with all aspects of commercial work.

Having worked in private practice and in-house with major banks, such as Lloyds, Clydesdale and Tesco, I understand the importance of learning who my clients really are, what drives their businesses and what is important to them. The legal solution that is right for one is not right for all and so my clients can expect to have advice specially tailored for their particular circumstances, wants and needs. I always strive to deliver the type of service that works best for you.

Other responsibilities

Assumed as Partner in 2018, I am not only a lawyer, I also head up the Corporate Social Responsibility Committee here at Balfour+Manson. The Committee is tasked with finding ways in which we as a firm can assist our local communities, work with and champion charities, promote “green” initiatives and reduce our carbon footprint at home and at work. I am always delighted to hear from clients and contacts with suggestions in this regard.

Specialist area


I specialise in commercial property work and can help with:

Commercial leasing and associated matters;Acquisitions and disposals;Development work;Property security and finance; and General property related advice.

I can assist with most types of commercial property (from retail, office space, industrial, forestry to hospitality and leisure) located anywhere in Scotland.
I have many contacts in the property industry, so if you require any property related assistance at all, please get in touch. If I am unable to help, I will find someone who can.


My experience also extends to a range of non-property related matters including banking, funds and consumer regulation.

I am a people person. I enjoy building relationships with existing clients and also thrive on meeting new people. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with me if you think I can assist. I work with all types of clients: from individuals to companies, small businesses to multi-nationals and I would be delighted to hear from you to assess how I can assist you.
