Stephenson Harwood makes up four to partner

Stephenson Harwood has made up four partners this year, with an extra one each promoted in the firm’s Singapore local partnership and Asia joint-venture Stephenson Harwood & Lo.

In the firm’s London office Martin Fleetwood, Ben Mercer and Mike Phillips all joined the partnership, along with Alexandros Damianidis in Pireaus.

Fleetwood and Damianidis both specialise in finance, while Mercer focuses on corporate work and Phillips is in the shipping litigation practice group.

Gregg Johnston made the grade in Singapore, while Jason Toms was promoted in the Hong Kong office of Stephenson Harwood & Lo.

The promotion round is smaller than last year, when seven associates were made up.
