International Arbitration lawyer, Partner to £300,000

Reference: MC890655
Job type: Permanent
Location: UK - London
Practice areas:
Litigation - Mediation/Arbitration
This is a truly international law firm that operates a market leading international arbitration practice. GAR listed and ranked in the upper quartile of high stakes international arbitration practices in the US, this quietly confident firm is exceptionally good at what it does. There is clearly a need to grow the European offering and US management have approved additional partner level headcount for their London office.

While the firm is probably best known for representing sovereign states, it is keen to compliment the commercial arbitration offering in London. Globally it is known in the energy sector, so this would be an ‘immediate match’, but it is open as to sector experience and will consider strong business cases.

In terms of your profile, you are likely to be a partner although the firm will consider
exceptional non-partners operating at that level. There is no shortage of work so while a following is always welcome, it is more about your reputation and experience.

This mandate was approved prior to the COVID 19 crisis but is still active with meetings taking place remotely.
