Stephenson Harwood expands corporate practice with three new partners


Law firm Stephenson Harwood LLP has expanded its private equity capabilities with the addition of partners Jonathan Pittal, Warren Allan and Gabriel Boghossian to its corporate practice in London‎. 

"The recruitment of Jonathan, Warren and Gabriel provides a significant expansion of our existing corporate offering," said Andrew Edge, head of corporate, Stephenson Harwood. "The strength of our M&A, ECM and closed ended funds practices has been widely recognised by clients and the legal directories in recent years, and this addition of a highly experienced private equity team complements and builds upon those existing practices. We are very excited about the prospect of working alongside them."

The three partners, from King & Wood Mallesons (SJ Berwin), have extensive private equity experience, advising private equity houses and financial institutions on private fund formation, secondary transactions and private equity transactions.

Pittal, formerly co-head of the UK private equity transactions team at King & Wood Mallesons, brings more than 20 years of experience covering the structuring of fund managers, the establishment of investment funds and advising on corporate transactions.

Allan's practice focuses on advising clients on private fund formation, secondary transactions and leveraged buyouts and Boghossian specialises in advising private equity funds in relation to secondary transactions, including GP-led restructurings, co-investments and M&A transactions, acting for corporates, sponsors and management teams.

"This move reflects our strategy to continue to grow and strengthen our firm," said Sharon White, chief executive. "The calibre and experience of Jonathan, Warren and Gabriel demonstrates our ability to attract the very best lawyers, while further developing our corporate offering."
