Disputes – Litigation, 7+ PQE
We are looking for a Senior Associate to join our market-leading, hugely-successful disputes team, which continues to grow.
Our London-based team advises on a wide variety of international and national disputes, across all the sectors that the Firm specialises in, including TMT, financial services, energy, life sciences and real estate. The work we do for our clients is often high profile and at the cutting edge of dispute resolution.
This team has a proven track record of providing practical and commercial advice to a wide range of clients at all stages of the dispute resolution process – from drafting dispute resolution clauses during pre-contractual negotiations, through to obtaining emergency injunctions in situations where assets may be at risk, to litigating and arbitrating complex multi-jurisdictional disputes and enforcing judgments and awards and recovering assets.
You will be expected to provide in-depth case analysis and briefings for the partners and the team whilst being able to manage substantial disputes under partner supervision. You will work directly with clients. This will include taking instructions and preparing high quality and concise party/party correspondence, instructions to Counsel, pleadings and other court and arbitration documents as required. You will also be able to support the partners with business development opportunities and encouraged to take the initiative in developing your own and the team’s client relationships and market profile.
You will have a well developed understanding of litigation, arbitration and ADR procedures with the ability to translate legal theory into practical commercial advice. You will be an excellent communicator. You must have solid experience within a comparable firm recognised for general disputes work and be able to handle clients in major blue chip companies. You will be expected to work collaboratively within a team environment and support not only the development of the practice but also the team’s culture and values.
The team is growing and we are currently looking to recruit at 7PQE+.
Please note our advertisements use PQE/salary levels purely as a guide. However we are happy to consider applications from all candidates who are able to demonstrate the skills necessary to fulfil the role.
