Sam Longworth

By Spear's

One of the UK’s leading partners, Longworth is popular among clients, referrers and peers alike. He is ‘very highly regarded not only for his personal qualities but also his excellence as a lawyer,’ a contemporary says.

He started at SA Law, a boutique firm in St Albans. The speed and intensity of a windfall £300 million case made him realise he had to move to London for more. He joined Stewarts Law in 2007, where he became partner in 2013.

That nine-figure case at the start of his career set a precedent. The lawyer peers call ‘discreet, reliable and technically-excellent’ is now hooked on high-profile divorces (he was the number two on Peter Andre’s).

Peers describe the astute litigator as tough, ‘charismatic and assertive’, with a ‘calming approach’ when needed. ‘[He’s] Never one to shy away from a challenging client or opponent, or a complex case,’ echoed another. The lawyer’s favourite briefs are the ones with a media angle, where correctly drafted and coordinated confidentiality agreements come in handy to protect clients’ personal and brand image.
