Partner/Lateral Hires

"An entrepreneurial yet collegiate firm with a great culture and colleagues, excellent clients and a positive work/life balance." - Ian Craig, Partner

Be a partner in every sense of the word. At Stevens & Bolton, you can use your expertise for world-class clients, be an integral part of an industry-leading team and help to shape the future direction of the firm.

We are continuously strengthening our team through a combination of organic growth, internal development and high-quality lateral hires. We attract partners from some of the best known law firms in the UK and abroad, as well as having a great track record of promoting people to partner-level from within our ranks.

With senior lateral hire candidates, we focus first and foremost on attracting exceptional lawyers who uphold our shared values – empathy, excellence, straightforward and together. We take great care to ensure that lateral hires have the best possible chance of success with a strong history of hiring partners who remain with us for the long term.

We are committed to an agile working model at Stevens & Bolton – we all benefit from more flexibility in our lives as a result. Our office in Guildford provides a modern, flexible working environment as the hub of our business – a place where we can work together, collaborate and socialise. We also provide our people with IT and other equipment and support so we can work seamlessly from home. We are excited about the social, professional and wellbeing benefits that can be unlocked through spending time working face to face with our colleagues. So, as part of our agile working model, we encourage everyone to work in the office for at least two days per week (and some people choose to do so more often than that).

As a growing business, we have an “open door” recruitment policy and many of our most successful recent additions to the team have resulted from speculative approaches to us.
