Employment, Well-known client base, 1-3 PQE - London
Our client is a well-managed and very highly regarded City of London firm with a strong reputation for advising a client list comprising well-known brands from the technology, fintech and fashion industries. The firm was started by Partners from much larger firms determined to take their clients to a platform where they could continue to provide them with high quality legal advice in a more bespoke environment.
During lockdown the firm grew, hiring Partners and Associates who were attracted by the firm's strong values, stable of well-known clients and the firm's dynamic and collegial environment: cross-department sector groups lead to a close-knit, motivated and collaborative organisational culture.
Due to growing client demand, the firm now offers an exciting opportunity to be part of an expanding practice, already with a great brand name within the HR law space. They are looking for an additional Employment Associate (likely 1-3 PQE) who can demonstrate high quality experience of:
- Drafting, negotiating and advising on employee contracts, employee handbooks and other employee related documentation;
- Advising on dismissals, disciplinary processes, grievances and other employee relations issues;
- Working as part of a team on tribunal and High Court litigation; and
- Advising on TUPE and other employee related matters associated with business restructures, sales and purchases.
The successful candidate will most likely have gained experience from a recognised Employment team in a City, West End, high quality regional, or international firm. Many of the firm's Partners and Associates have joined from far larger international law firms, drawn by high quality work and clients, and a far more friendly and personal working style.
If you are successful, you will be encouraged to take on a high level of responsibility in terms of the day to day management of your case load (always with excellent partner supervision where appropriate). You'll be client facing on a daily basis, and also involved in business development activities with a view to developing client relationships. There are good prospects for career progression within this growing team and firm; this is an exceptional opportunity for a high quality ambitious Employment lawyer.
