Permanent role
Reference Number:


Probably the best litigation and arbitration team globally, is looking to hire three litigation & arbitration associates to join their international practice, based in London. The high standing of the Firm and its Partners allows it to attract the biggest cases, the biggest deals and lead on some on the most recognised cases in the news around the world.

Our client is a leading international law firm, renown for being in the top 5 globally. Having a relatively small Litigation and Arbitration team (circa 8 partners and 25 associates), their firepower is world class. Representing some of the biggest clients in Commercial Litigations, Bilateral Investment Treaty Work and Public International Law, the team is able to advise on a range and combination of issues which also includes White Collar Crime.

Due to growth and expansion (and success), the team are looking to hire 3 lawyers (either Solicitors or Barristers) to work on a wide range of cases. You will manage your own litigation and where appropriate, also your own advocacy. You will be representing countries, global conglomerates and high profile leaders. Exposure will be across the full gambit of contentious matters, from Arbitrations (both ad-hoc and and subject to rules), regulatory investigations, commercial litigations, public law litigations and money laundering and fraud cases.

Candidate who are interested should have the following:

- Qualified in England & Wales, including the QLTS, as a Solicitor OR Qualified as a Barrister
- Ideally 2-7 years' PQE (all candidates will be considered within this range)
- Direct hands on experience of any of the following from a well known City or International firm: commercial litigation, arbitration, Bilateral Investment Trade / Public International Law, regulatory investigations or white collar crime
- Excellent academics and a commercial mindset are paramount

Furthermore, the firm pays some of the highest salaries in London, whilst remains competitive with target billable hours of 1800. Therefore culturally, the firm can offer an environment which supports a social and family life, whilst paying life changing salaries. The firm has a strong social side and due to all of the above, very few lawyers decide to leave.
