Renowned private wealth specialist Jonathan Conder to join Stephenson Harwood as partner from Macfarlanes


Law firm Stephenson Harwood LLP is strengthening its global private wealth practice with the addition of Jonathan Conder. He will join as a partner based in the firm's London office.

Conder advises UK and international private clients, trustees, foundations, family offices and private banks on all aspects of tax, trust, estate and succession planning, as well as regulatory, immigration and philanthropic issues. He also has significant experience in assisting families and trustees on contentious matters. He joins the firm from Macfarlanes, where he was a partner and formerly head of the firm's private wealth practice.

"We are delighted that Jonathan is joining the team, he is one of the pre-eminent tax and private wealth lawyers in the market," said Eifion Morris, Chief Executive Officer, Stephenson Harwood. "As part of the firm's five year-strategy we have ambitious plans for growth in a number of key areas, including private wealth.  Having been a partner since 1995 and head of private wealth at Macfarlanes for more than a decade, Jonathan's extensive experience and standing will play a critical role in achieving those ambitions."

"With established cross-border expertise, and a truly international client-base, Jonathan's practice perfectly complements ours," said Jenny McKeown, head of employment, pensions and private wealth, Stephenson Harwood. "He shares our ethos of putting our clients at the heart of everything we do. We are really looking forward to working with Jonathan, and to creating the next chapter of the firm's global private wealth capabilities with him on board."

The Stephenson Harwood multi-disciplinary global private wealth team advises individuals, their families and trustees on a wide range of matters (both contentious and non-contentious), with a particular focus on complex international structuring, especially where a family business or corporate structure is involved.
