Howard Kennedy continues to beef up its media department with the hire of another Hammonds partner. Justin Stephenson joins the eight-strong media team headed by his former Hammonds colleague Brian Eagles.
Stephenson is a banking lawyer who specialises in media finance. He will work predominantly for the film and music industries and will lend a hand to the general banking practice. “I have done lots of work with Howard Kennedy and I know all the partners, so the move was a logical fit. They are a fun bunch to be around,” said Stephenson.
Eagles said Stephenson had been a target for some time. “At Hammonds I so much enjoyed working with him and I have always been on the lookout to get him back. I think he is the finest media banking lawyer in the country.”
