Stevens & Bolton has today announced the appointment of new partner Jonathan Steele who joins the corporate practice from Charles Russell Speechlys.
Jonathan is an accomplished corporate transactional specialist, offering expert advice on a wide spectrum of matters including mergers and acquisitions, corporate investments and restructurings. He has particular industry expertise in the healthcare, technology and media sectors.
Jonathan’s arrival comes at a time of considerable growth for the firm and adds to the five partner hires made by the firm over the past 12 months: Sarah Cardew from Irwin Mitchell, Caroline Delaney from Rosenblatt, Andy Williams from Charles Russell Speechlys, Gareth Walliss from Shoosmiths and Heidi Sawtell from Talbot Walker. It also follows the recent internal promotion to partner of Matthew Peto in the firm’s private client practice. Jonathan’s arrival takes the total number of partners in the all-equity partnership to 47.
Commenting on Jonathan’s arrival, James Waddell, Managing Partner, said “The Stevens & Bolton corporate practice continues to go from strength to strength, with one of the largest mid-market M&A teams outside the City and a particular specialism in executing buy-and-build strategies for corporate acquirers. Jonny is a great addition to our really strong corporate partner bench and we are delighted to welcome him to the firm.”
