Head of Financial Services Enforcement - Partner - US Firm

Reference: SP887815
Job type: Permanent
Location: UK - London
Practice areas:
‘A goal without a plan is just a wish’, this US firm is certainly not wishing for a financial services litigation practice in London to complement the leading practice in the USA, it is planning and preparing for it.

In the States the group broadly called financial services has over 100 lawyers and this team has been highly influential in the creation of enforcement and securities legislation. The lawyers have represented some of the largest investment banks, international exchanges, specialist traders, brokerage firms, clearinghouses, technology companies and investment funds.

The global management have formulated a clear strategic plan with the London office playing a key role and financial services regulatory litigation is a key part of that plan. There is an existing leading non-contentious regulatory team in London which is very well integrated with the US side of the practice. There are leading US lawyers who regularly travel to London and support the non-contentious team of lawyers. This would look to be replicated on the contentious side with leading US lawyers who are invested in this hire and will provide immediate support to the contentious side of the practice. There are real opportunities to win enforcement mandates from a number of existing clients, currently there is simply no one to execute the work.
