Litigation Lawyer (Civil Fraud)– 4+PQE – Boutique Firm, Prospects

Reference: AJ9516EG
Job type: Permanent
Location: UK - London
Practice areas:
Private Client
Litigation - Civil Litigation
Private Client - Trusts
Private Client - Wills & Probate
This specialist boutique law firm advises on the prosecution and investigation of a range of criminal offences, as well as boasting a leading civil team with extensive expertise in relation to fraud and asset tracing, and contentious trust and probate matters.

The partners making up the civil team are established leaders in their field and having worked at some of the top law firms in London they have been involved with some of the largest cases in this area, both in the English courts and the major offshore jurisdictions. The team’s work often has an international element, and they act for both companies and individuals on fraud, asset-tracing and breach of trust issues, including advising on emergency injunctive relief and search orders.

Due to their continuing workflow and incoming instructions, the team are now in need of additional support, and are therefore seeking an experienced associate to join the partners. The ideal candidate will have at least 4 years’ PQE gained within a well-regarded practice, and will have had a solid experience of this type of work.

This is a perfect opportunity for someone who is looking for an alternative to the Big City law firm environment, and whilst the firm offers a very different lifestyle, the quality of work is excellent, with the team often going head-to-head with the Magic Circle.

The firm is small and dedicated to this area of law, and can therefore provide an ambitious lawyer with the space to grow and really make their mark. There are genuine prospects for progression, and you should therefore be eager to learn and develop, as well as being highly motivated to work towards partnership.
