Following the recent announcement of a strong financial performance last year, national independent law firm Stevens & Bolton LLP has today announced the appointment of two new partner hires: Caroline DeLaney joins the real estate disputes team from Rosenblatt and Andy Williams joins the employment, pensions, and immigration team from Charles Russell Speechlys.
Caroline’s work covers litigation, arbitration and mediation as well as property tribunal and Land Registry adjudications. Caroline is an accredited civil and commercial mediator.
Andy advises on all aspects of employment law and has a particular expertise in advising large corporates on significant workplace issues, such as reorganisations, TUPE transfers and changes to terms and conditions.
He also has experience of Employment Tribunal and High Court work, dealing with a broad range of contentious issues, including negotiating severance packages both on behalf of, and when acting against, senior executives. In addition, Andy brings a breadth of experience on pension matters, both contentious and non-contentious.
These appointments follow the recent hires of corporate and insurance regulatory specialist Heidi Sawtell and private client expert Gareth Walliss, and bring the total number of partners at the firm to 44. The firm recently posted another strong set of financial results with a 12th year of consecutive growth and increases across the board in turnover, net profit, and profit per equity partner (PEP).
Commenting on the appointments, James Waddell, Managing Partner, said:
“Having recently made two internal partner promotions and two lateral hire appointments, we are delighted to have attracted two more partners of Caroline’s and Andy’s calibre to join our all-equity partnership.
Both join established and successful teams and add to our capability to look after our clients and win new business.
They join at an exciting time for the firm and their arrival furthers our ambitious growth plans.”
