Clarion adds experienced litigator to team

After more than ten years working for a ‘magic circle’ firm in the City, seasoned litigator Rob Stewart has joined Clarion’s growing commercial dispute and resolution practice in Leeds as a legal director.

Having qualified in 2011, Mr Stewart went on to work for international law firm Clifford Chance for over a decade, rising through the ranks to senior associate and working on a number of high-profile cases.

Primarily a contract and corporate litigator, he works across all industries and sectors advising blue chip corporates, international banks and private equity portfolio companies alongside entrepreneurs and owner-managed businesses. He also advises institutional trustees and high-net-worth individuals with contentious trust matters.

Mr Stewart has worked with a number of the world’s largest companies, banks, and governments on some of the biggest cases in the English courts over the last few years. He now returns to Yorkshire to join Clarion’s expanding commercial litigation team as a legal director.

“Rob has had an impressive career to date at one of this country’s premier firms in London. He brings a wealth of skills to the team which add to and complement our existing and market leading commercial disputes practice,” said Simon Young, partner and head of the dispute resolution practice at Clarion.

“As we continue to make a name for ourselves across the UK and further afield, Rob further strengthens our offering to clients.”
