Competition Lawyer, 3-5 PQE, US law firm

Reference: BD7079EG
Job type: Permanent
Location: UK - London
Practice areas:
This US law firm has seen its UK base expand significantly since opening not long ago. Not just an outpost for New York or Washington, the London team is self-sufficient, successful and busy across practice areas. Having built its competition practice over the last year it now seeks another associate to build the practice to four fee earners.

The ideal candidate will have gained experience in a well-known competition practice and have exposure to (or be keen to secure access to) a range of competition and antitrust matters through merger control to behavioural work and some contentious issues too, and be keen on being able to take matters into their own hands and be hands on with business development.

Alongside high quality work and a stellar brand there is of course the benefit of a US salary to sweeten the deal, but without the trappings of a pressurised billing culture. If you are qualified in England & Wales, have between 1-6pqe, and have good training and academics then please apply accordingly.

Apply online or contact BEN DANIELS at ben.daniels@edwardsgibson.com or +44 207 153 4903 to find out more about this or similar opportunities.
