A global law firm which works with clients every day to understand local challenges and navigate through regional complexity.


The award winning London Employment Team is part of a pan-European team, working across sectors to advise employers on their most important asset - their people.

The team's expertise covers the full range of sensitive personnel issues including dismissal, protecting confidentiality, employment tribunals and team moves.

They manage the legal, commercial and reputational risks associated with employment, occupational health and safety, and industrial relations issues.

They are currently seeking a Managing Associate and the individual will need to be a solid all-rounder, with particularly strong experience of corporate support and leading on a range of transactional work, though exposure to advisory and litigation would be highly beneficial.

As well as conducting their fee earning duties, the successful candidate will take responsibility for mentoring and supervising more junior team members and will be a very visible and key member of this highly regarded team.
