Banking Litigation Associate

Greater London
£70,000.00 - 100,000.00
Private Practice
Contract Type:
Permanent role
Reference Number:


A leading international City law firm, based in the City of London, is seeking to hire solicitors with Banking Litigation experience. Unique to these roles, is the chance to work on the biggest cases in the City, but not representing the investment bank community. This offers the opportunity to defend or represent the smaller financial services businesses such as hedge-funds, brokers, investment managers etc. In recent years, the firm has hired a number of Associates from Magic Circle, US and top City firms, drawn in by the quality of the work and the opportunity to lead on such big cases.

The firm itself is unique. It has the firepower, including offices in Asia, to take on the big players in the market, but does not hold world dominance. Therefore culturally it's a firm that lawyers want to work for, creating an inclusive and team-orientated environment. Target hours are low and there is an emphasis on work / life balance.
In recent years, the firm has seen an explosion of work in banking and commercial litigation and there are real growth plans to take associates on the journey to partnership.

If you have the following attributes and skills, I would recommend contacting us as soon as possible:

Banking Litigation Associate

* Qualified Solicitor with a leading law firm, ideally with a minimum of 18 months qualification
* Excellent academics and a high degree with a recognised university, combined with a demonstrable commercial brain
* Direct experience of working on banking litigation cases - this could be representing the larger banks / financial institutions

The firm is seeking to hire a number of associates, so if you believe you have the necessary experience, or simply want to find out more, please contact James Franklin at BCL Legal.

If you're interested in this role, please apply now or forward an up-to-date copy of your CV, or call us.
