Corporate Crime – elite international firm to c.£1.4 million Back to List

Corporate crime has remained relatively active over the last few years, 2020 - 8 moves so far, 2019 - 13 and in 2018 an extraordinary 27 moves.

We are recruiting on behalf of a leading full service elite global law firm. The majority of practices are Band 1 in the legal directories and hence there are number of lawyers listed as leading individuals. The firm has a leading global litigation practice, again with a number of leading lawyers in London.

The corporate crime practice is recognised as a market leader. When the practice was launched in London, the move was seen by many (retrospectively) as strategically visionary. This is a very rare opportunity to join a practice of this standing, in a role of real strategic influence.

Historically 70% of the work has been on behalf of corporates and banks, and 30% on behalf of very high-profile individuals. The work is generated mainly through the network and hence when the firm recruits (which is relatively rarely) they tend to look at lawyers with leading reputations or up and coming partners from leading practices. This role is quite unusual as the firm will consider a junior to mid-level partner.

By way of background you will need to be at a well-respected fraud practice and the firm will consider partners from either City practices or at leading boutiques.
