IP Litigation lawyer, Partner to £800,000 US FIRM

Reference: MC890615
Job type: Permanent
Location: UK - London
Practice areas:
IT/IP/Media/Sport - IP Litigation
This is a leading US law firm in London which has made a significant impact over the last 10 years. Internationalisation has been key to the firm’s success and the lawyers market the firm as a global boutique. The firm is very profitable and partner remuneration is a mix of points and merit. Some of the younger partners are the biggest contributors and hence are some of the highest earners.

Unusually, the London office is now one of this law firm’s largest offices with almost 100 lawyers and houses several key decision makers. The firm has ambitious growth plans, which are already underway, for the next five years. The partnership is looking to launch new practice areas in London and add to the already recognised pockets of excellence.

The firm is very active in the hospitality, technology and pharmaceutical (representing both large generic and smaller innovator companies) sectors and represents clients throughout their lifecycle of acquisitions, financings and disputes. Complementing these practices, the firm regards IP as an equally important ‘stand-alone’ offering for clients looking to protect and defend their interests. Having made several ‘heavyweight’ acquisitions in the Patent, Copyright and Trademark arenas in New York, the partnership is keen to replicate this in London.

Reputation and background are both important for this hire. The firm recognises it is not always easy to quantify following but you will need to demonstrate your ability to build a client base and you will have a track record of historic billings. The firm can offer a superb platform and existing global network upon which to grow your practice.
