Charles Russell in three-partner raid on Stephenson Harwood

Stephenson Harwood has lost three partners and two consultants from its private capital and family teams.

Partners Robert Partridge, Robert Blower and Jonathan Walsh, along with consultants William Corbett and Michael Jennings, are joining Charles Russell from Stephenson Harwood.

These departures follow those of John Higham QC, who left for White & Case and China partner Yvonne Percival, who joined Eversheds Shanghai office, last month.

The departures bring the number of partners who have left Stephenson Harwood since its merger with Sinclair Roche & Temperley in May 2002 to 15.
