Partner/Lateral Hires

Partner/Lateral Hires

Our strategy for growth involves a combination of organic growth and high-quality lateral hires.

In discussion with senior lateral hire candidates, we focus first and foremost on fit. We take great care to ensure that lateral hires have the best possible chance of success, and are delighted with our strong track record of hiring partners who remain with us for the long term, contributing strongly to our growth and success.

After a long and rewarding stint at one of the best Real Estate firms in the City, I would only have left, Nabarro, now CMS, for an entrepreneurial yet collegiate firm with a great culture and colleagues, excellent clients and a positive work/life balance. Happily, I have found all of that at Stevens & Bolton.


We are always delighted to discuss informally with partners or potential partners the benefits of working with us, and we are always interested in seeing strong candidates in most practice areas. 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.

After 27 years at a top City law firm, including leading a major foreign office and then head of corporate in London, I felt ready for a change. I talked to Stevens & Bolton and really liked the friendly non-political culture, the strategic vision of offering a high quality, better value service as a strong alternative to City firms and – last but not least – the better work: life balance resulting from working so close to where I lived and binning the daily commute. 15 years later I can honestly say I have never regretted my move – it has proved a great success for me and – I hope! - the firm.
