COMMERCIAL LITIGATION ASSOCIATE 2-4YRS- TOP 30 UK FIRM
This UK firm are seeking a 2-4PQE Solicitor to join their specialist Commercial Litigation team in London. The London Commercial Litigation group has a strong reputation amongst its peers. It is particularly known for corporate/commercial disputes and regulatory work in the banking and financial services arena, accountants' regulatory investigations and professional liability, and IT/IP/defamation. Recently, its services have expanded to include non-contentious and contentious advice on bribery and corruption and corporate/AML compliance programmes. Its services are highly complementary to the corporate/commercial, real estate, employment, insurance and health sectors within the firm.
The group generates the substantive part of its revenue through a combination of referrals from other law firms, direct instructions from corporates and a number of the large accountancy firms, recommendations from other professionals and internal marketing. The Group is working closely with other service lines within the firm to further develop cross referral opportunities. The Commercial Litigation group is exceptionally well placed to be one of the groups that leads the drive for the expansion of profitable, high value work from international clients.
The successful candidate will be expected to work extensively with all the partners in the team. Much of the current work relates to claims in the region of £10-100M in value but the role will include acting for clients with smaller claims. The appointment supports the team's aspirations to grow in size. The work includes the following:
*General commercial litigation work. This includes contract disputes, breach of warranty claims under SPAs, project finance issues, internal company disputes, international arbitration and work with the EPG in civil claims arising from employment issues
*Banking and finance disputes which involve acting for international banks and their senior employees in a wide range of regulatory and commercial disputes.
*PI and regulatory instructions acting for major accountancy firms.
*Advising on bringing and defending defamation claims for clients including insurers, public bodies, large corporates and high net worth individuals. This part of the practice also includes IP work, where the team regularly advises insurers and other T200 clients on copyright, trademark, design and passing off disputes.
