Harry Stewart

Senior Associate

I am a lawyer in Fladgate’s Dispute Resolution team, specialising in complex, high value disputes. While I have a particular focus on banking and financial markets litigation, I regularly represent companies and individuals in commercial disputes across a range of sectors, often involving an international element.


I act for corporate and private clients in a broad range of sectors who are involved in commercial litigation, whether as claimant or defendant in the proceedings.

My role as a litigator involves quickly getting to grips with a client’s business and gaining a thorough understanding of the events underlying the dispute. Clients trust me to put forward their best case at all times, often in fast-moving circumstances that require strategic flexibility, while helping them to navigate court processes and deadlines in an efficient and timely manner.

Outside of the office, as a keen linguist I like to travel whenever I get the opportunity. I also enjoy cooking and sports, and am equally happy in a good restaurant or on the tennis court, although preferably not in that order.


Working closely with clients to anticipate and deal with their business risks and objectives, we utilise the skills of a team of lawyers who are experienced in all types of dispute resolution. Our multi-national, bi-lingual team enables us to service clients wherever they are in the world while achieving the best results for their business.


We have a track record for taking on complex, high value and cross-border disputes across a range of sectors. Our strong international focus is a key strength.
