London Head of Employment lawyer, Partner to £400,000

Reference: MC890650
Job type: Permanent
Location: UK - London
Practice areas:
Employment - Non-contentious Employment
This is an opportunity to join a Washington headquartered law firm that benefits from an established tier one ranked employment practice in the States. The firm has, to date, maintained a modest offering in London, running a relatively small office. The London team is currently rated for Real Estate, Litigation and trade practices.

Given there are no employment lawyers in the London office, this is effectively a greenfield site where you will immediately assume a ‘head of’ role. Naturally, you will be expected to have a degree of client following but there will also be work referred from other partners and their practices. This is not intended to be a one-partner ‘service’ role and it is anticipated you will grow a team. The ideal candidate will have a background in respondent work and a mix of contentious and non-contentious employment law experience. The person is likely to be an existing partner but those on the cusp of partnership with relevant backgrounds will also be considered.
