*Exclusive* Banking Litigators INHERIT AN ENTIRE PRACTICE (succession) - Partner / Senior Associate

London 

Up to £500,000

Segal Placements is delighted to be exclusively representing a highly-regarded London based Firm who have a market leading Banking and Finance practice but who are looking to supplement it with an additional hire on the Banking Litigation side through the appointment of a Partner/ Senior Associate. 

The current head of that team is likely to be winding things down in relatively short order and a safe pair of hands is needed to look after the Firm's long-established relationships on that side of things. As a result, within a couple of years the successful candidate will likely inherit an entire book of business (and potentially a 'Head of' role).

The Firm is hugely connected with a wide array of lenders although less so with the large Retail banks and so the ideal candidate will more likely have relationships with Challenger banks, foreign lenders and short-term lenders (34 of whom this Firm is panelled with).

Further, the successful Partner / Senior Associate candidate will likely have experience of at least some of the following:

  • Advising lenders in connection with enforcement of loans, usually secured, and providing them with details of their available options.
  • Reviewing security and loan paperwork and identifying any issues with these.
  • Advising on remedies to address any issues with loan and/or security which are identified, if there are any available.
  • Dealing with possession proceedings where required including contested actions and third party claims.
  • Preparing witness statements, instructing Counsel and agents in respect of hearings.
  • Advising on fraud cases and the implications for the lender and its security.
  • Preparing for and attending mediations and other forms of alternative dispute resolution.
  • Pursuing guarantors, both corporate and personal.
  • Pursuing claims for negligence against valuers and solicitors.
  • Liaising with the CPS regarding Restraint Orders and other orders under POCA and advising lenders on the implications on their enforcement.
  • Advising receivers and administrators on matters related to security properties following their appointment (these can be very diverse).
  • Negotiating and liaising with local authorities about planning breaches, amendments to S.106 agreements.
  • Pursuing claims against the HMLR compensation scheme where the title is rectified as a result of fraud.
  • Advising on whether loans should be regulated or unregulated and providing advice as to the relevant exemptions to the MCOB regulations.
  • Liaising with High Court Enforcement Officers regarding enforcement in complex or contested cases.
  • Advising clients on matters such as penalty clauses, allegations of unfair relationships and misrepresentation.
  • Advising on claims of undue influence, usually from providers of third party security.
  • Managing client relationships and providing monthly reports for some clients and attending quarterly governance meeting for others.
