SNR Denton exodus continues with SH and KBH Kaanuun benefiting

Stephenson Harwood has added another three City partners including a further two from SNR Denton as the firm continues its lateral hiring trend.

The firm has picked up two more litigators following the recent hire of Andrew Myers from SNR Denton (11 June 2012), with contentious restructuring partner Elizabeth Elliott joining from the same firm and construction litigation partner Ron Nobbs moving from Reynolds Porter Chamberlain (RPC).

Alongside Elliott, Stephenson Harwood is also set to snatch SNR restructuring lawyer Susan Moore, who was previously a partner at the City rival before becoming a consultant.

Separately, SNR Denton London-based disputes partner DK Singh has left to join Arabian Gulf firm KBH Kaanuun as a partner in Dubai, with the former private secretary to the High Commissioner for India in London enjoying a particular focus on commercial arbitration. He was formerly head of SNR Denton’s India desk.

Of the Stephenson Harwood hires, Elliott’s practice focuses on insolvency litigation, while Moore – who was previously a partner at SNR Denton before becoming a consultant – covers both contentious and non-contentious restructuring.

The duo become the latest in a string of Stephenson Harwood recruits from SNR Denton, with real estate finance head Andrew Hill and real estate partner Paul Hayward-Surry joining the Finsbury Circus firm earlier this year (4 January 2012).

Nobbs, meanwhile, a former RPC partner, advises on construction, civil engineering, transport, utilities and energy disputes. He joined the firm on 1 June, but a Stephenson Harwood spokesperson could not confirm Moore and Elliott’s starting dates.
