We are thrilled that Ben Stewart has been recognised as one of Australia’s legal stars of the future.
Ben, a senior associate in our Perth Corporate team, won the M&A Award at the Lawyer’s Weekly 30 Under 30 Awards. A crowd of more than 500 was on hand in Sydney to discover who would be identified as the country’s best and brightest. Two winners for each of the 15 categories were selected by high-profile judges, representing some of the up-and-comers who are making a true impact on the business of law early on in their careers.
Ben is regarded by his team and his clients as a go-to lawyer, who relentlessly and tirelessly works to achieve valuable outcomes for his clients. He is also regarded as a leader culturally within the workplace.
In addition, Ben is cognisant of the importance of developing business relationships early in his career and he devotes a significant amount of time towards business development activities. Through this, Ben has introduced multiple clients to the firm, including a major international investment bank for whom Ben and his team are currently acting on a significant corporate bond offering.Simon Rear, Ben’s supervising partner, said: “It is perhaps Ben’s desire for continuous improvement that is his best quality, as it will ensure that he continues to achieve great things.”
