The firm excels in assisting senior executives to deal with amicable, and not so amicable departures.

We have the strength, quality and expertise of a large City law firm. However, unlike most of our peers, as well as acting for businesses we act for individuals. As such, we have a unique tactical insight and a thorough appreciation of the issues involved on both sides of the employment relationship.
"Stewarts Law LLP 'excels' in its cutting-edge work for senior executives, partly due to its 'excellent knowledge of how the City works'." (Legal 500 2015)
We advise on a full range of employment, partnership and LLP issues. We also work closely with our colleagues in our leading Commercial Litigation Department to advise clients on the employment, partnership and LLP aspects of wider commercial disputes.
We are experienced litigators renowned for our work in complex and high value disputes. We also have a wealth of experience advising on matters where there is no dispute.
We provide clear, concise and timely advice tailored to our clients' specific circumstances and focussed on achieving the best possible outcomes. Our advice goes beyond legal analysis to address the wider practical, commercial and strategic issues.
When acting for businesses, we provide advice which reflects their wider strategic and commercial considerations. We always provide advice which is bespoke to the particular circumstances of our clients' businesses and the industries in which they operate.
We act for senior executives across a wide range of sectors, with a particular focus on banking and financial services. Chambers and Partners and Legal 500 refer to us having "an outstanding reputation acting for claimants against the investment banks and other financial institutions". As well as acting for senior executives, we act for private and public companies, partnerships, LLPs and public bodies. We are frequently entrusted by other major City and international law firms to act for their clients when they are unable to because of conflicts of interest.
Some of the matters on which we advise have an international dimension. This often entails us working with international law firms with whom we have reciprocal working relationships. We are able to guide our clients through complex issues including the most appropriate and advantageous jurisdiction in which to bring or enforce proceedings.
