Are you a Commercial Litigation Partner looking to work for a medium sized specialist London firm that really punches above their weight in terms of work quality? This firm would facilitate a move away from the structured, siloed culture of a huge City firm, whilst still maintaining a very high standard of International work and offering very realistic progression to ambitious Associates.

The Firm

Over the past decade the founders have worked hard to grow a culture that delivers exceptional legal advice whilst maintaining their competitive edge against the larger City firms.

They specialise in Employment, Corporate, Tax, Technology, Litigation & Disputes, Business Contracts & Shareholders Rights.

This law firm has a culture that stands them apart from nearly all firms of their size. They are a people orientated business; they have a reputation for nurturing talent and a feel that you would normally only associate with small boutique firms.

The Role

You will be responsible for bringing, building or developing your own client base, adopting the firm's ethos and working alongside the other Partners to build the brand further ensuring future success for your department and the office as a whole.

Therefore, you must be client facing, business development focused and entrepreneurial to increase their Commercial Litigation offering throughout the City of London.

They are now looking for a client facing Partner with significant business development experienced to join them in an autonomous role, reporting to the Managing Partner.

Although this opportunity will be based around your specialist areas, you will be expected to have a broad knowledge across all areas of Commercial Litigation including Commercial Contracts, Director & Shareholder actions, Professional Negligence, Financial Disputes, Debt Recovery and Property Disputes

If you are an experienced Partner seeking the opportunity to build your team from the ground up - this firm will work with you closely to facilitate this offering full support to ensure the future success of your team. Alternatively this firm can provide a "team move" should you look to bring your talented department with you
