Senior Recruitment Consultant - London

This firm offers a platform to build a top-flight career for Solicitors, handling an exceptional quality of work with clients ranging from HNW individuals to multinational companies, often with an international element.
The firm is increasingly working at the cutting edge of the legal world, focusing on Fintech & emerging technologies.

The Firm

The firm has a long history of innovation. This is something that has always been reflected throughout their 200 years of business and continues to burn brightly into the future.

They will not compromise on providing the highest quality of advice, service, commitment and value for money and this is shown by the length of many of their client relationships.

They have a particular reputation for corporate and commercial, private wealth, real estate, dispute resolution, IP and employment work. Within this, they have built a strong track record in the financial services, media, arts and leisure industries.

They take every step they can to modernise the practice and now find themselves working on the most up-to-date sectors, including Fintech, Blockchain, cryptocurrency, and emerging technologies.

This is all backed up by both the firm and a large number of its individual lawyers being mentioned in the Legal 500 and Chambers lists.

The Role

The firm is seeking to recruit a Litigation Solicitor 1-3 PQE into their City of London office.

The dispute resolution team is highly ranked in the legal 500 and chambers, it is currently flourishing and has been steadily growing in recent times, with plans to continue to grow in line with increased workflow.

It is a vibrant and hard-working team; their achievements over the last five years are incredible.

You will join a successful team.

The work is challenging and stimulating.

The disputes are varied, which will appeal to a solicitor who is currently at a large law firm and would prefer to have greater responsibility and a more client-facing role.

You can expect a caseload consisting of claims ranging from c.£1m up to £100m and beyond.

The case matter typically surrounds derivatives/ISDA disputes, investment/product mis-selling, LIBOR/benchmark manipulation, breach of contract, professional negligence and fraud.

Experience in financial services related work would be valuable.

The firm's Associate level Lawyers lead on tasks regularly - they're given a high degree of autonomy, yet still supported to achieve success.

This team's work is at the highest level - as such the law firms on the other side are almost always magic circle and silver circle law firms. As such, you'll need to be confident in your approach, robust in your knowledge and have the ability to look after clients with finesse in claims against major opponents.

Requirements:

  • You will be a Litigation Solicitor 1-3 PQE (No applications considered outside of this bracket)
  • You will have gained a 2:1 in your degree
  • You will have very good A-Level results/ general academics
  • You will have worked for a recognised law firm
  • Salaries at this firm are very competitive and are dependant on your level of experience; you will also receive a lucrative bonus structure and benefits package.

This is an exceptional Litigation Solicitor 1-3 PQE role, with one of London's most well-known, Legal 500 practices in the heart of the West End.
