Meet the Team:

Stewart Jell

Work and clients

Stewart enjoys looking after a variety of clients, most of which are in the film, television and media industry. He has a wealth of experience in the sector, ranging from the management of individual’s needs and those of their businesses, through to auditing the accounts of UK PLCs. Whatever their size, Stewart's clients value his ability to get the right balance between attending to the detail where necessary and identifying opportunities to help them succeed.

Most entertaining deal or case

"The most entertaining deals and cases are the ones that I can’t talk about!"

What I like about my job

Interests outside work

Stewart is an ardent cricket fan and an Associate Member of the MCC - as new members are only admitted on a one-out, one-in basis, he expects the total wait to be about 10 years! Stewart is married with two daughters.

"They are specialists in film and media, are able to advise on the big picture and yet remain attentive to day-to-day processes. We have been hugely impressed with Shipleys and our Principal, Stewart Jell. Shipleys has proven to be the perfect fit.”
