With over 50 partners and in excess of 300 staff.

The Dispute Resolution Practice Group supports the wider firm's clients with a range of disputes across multiple jurisdictions.
The Group is looking to recruit a 1 - 3 PQE associate, in its commercial disputes team. The team litigates high value and complex claims at all levels before the English Courts. It regularly collaborates with lawyers internationally to resolve cross-border disputes. It handles major domestic and international arbitrations (ICC, LCIA, specialist tribunals and ad hoc) and makes effective use of all forms of ADR.
