Hamid Yunis Named to The Lawyer’s Hot 100 2023


LONDON (January 23, 2023) – International law firm McDermott Will & Emery is proud to announce that its London Managing Partner, Hamid Yunis, has been named to The Lawyer’s Hot 100, a list of the most accomplished and impactful lawyers in the UK. The magazine recognized Hamid’s strategic leadership in growing the Firm’s London office, not only in terms of revenue and headcount, but also with a strong focus on developing a range of wellbeing and diversity initiatives.

The Lawyer quotes: “Over the past three years in particular, under the local stewardship of corporate partner Hamid Yunis and global steer of chair Ira Coleman, McDermott has flourished. London growth is off the charts, with revenue understood to have more than doubled under Yunis… and benefitted from several years of canny lateral hiring.”

The Lawyer continues to say, “Throughout its recent evolution, Yunis has kept his steady hand on the strategic tiller, ensuring the office’s growth is globally aligned with the firm. But for Yunis success has also always been about the people. The raft of diversity and inclusion-related, pro-bono and other initiatives he has spearheaded and championed, ranging from the launch of a wellbeing committee, an inspirational leaders programme and the Women Together networking group is testament to a leader who knows that financial, tangible success is only part of the picture.”

The Lawyer‘s annual Hot 100 is compiled following extensive research into nominees’ client work and contribution to their firms, companies, and the wider legal profession. You can read more about Hamid’s recognition here.
