Stuart Hopper

Director of Practice Development & Innovation



Stuart is Director of Practice Development and Innovation for Dentons’ UK & Middle East Region, with a remit to advance the effective delivery of legal services. He is the author of the firm’s innovation strategy, and responsible for its execution, which sees him working to strengthen the linkages across the firm’s legal and key business functions to ensure that lawyers, operations, IT, business development and knowledge are all directed towards innovating and improving client service.

Stuart’s background as an M&A lawyer with practice experience in a number of jurisdictions, is augmented with a formal business training (MBA). This gives him a strongly commercial approach and allows him to combine all of the elements of innovation and broad knowledge management that are necessary to deliver value to clients.

Having lived and worked extensively abroad, Stuart enjoys bringing a combination of can-do skills and relationship building talent, practical management proficiency and the ability to building strong and effective working relationships across culturally diverse, complex global organisations.
