London-based Olswang has recruited SJ Berwin & Co partner David Stewart to be its first dedicated commercial litigation partner.
"We're really, genuinely excited about this," said Stewart, who specialises in international arbitration and was in charge of alternative dispute resolution at SJ Berwin & Co.

Stewart is an active member of the Middle East Association and hopes he can extend the firm's international reach. His experience will also enable him to contribute to the firm's strong media practice.
Olswang's head of litigation, Julia Palca, commented that it had taken a long time to find someone with a "suitably dynamic personality to fit in with the rest of our team".
