Our client is one of the world’s most well-known global financial institutions. It has a unique position in the European market, and has seen significant expansion across the EMEA region, and is enjoying significant success, bucking the trend of financial institutions in the current market.

Alongside this growth on the business side, the legal team has developed hugely - and it’s now the employment legal team’s turn to grow. London is playing a key role in the bank’s global legal support, and the small team is now in need of a mid-level associate to join them to advise on matters across EMEA.

The head of the team is therefore searching for an exceptionally bright and adept employment lawyer with at least 4pqe (probably up to c.6pqe, given the current make-up of the team), with top tier training and experience in a leading and ranked employment practice.

The ideal candidate will have a range of contentious and non-contentious experience, with experience advising financial institutions on a range of matters, from corporate employment practices and policies to litigation strategy and support, and internal risk and management oversight, and ad hoc support to HR teams and business leaders.

As one of the most successful and profitable financial institutions in London at the moment, this is a rare opportunity for a mid-level lawyer to move in-house, take advantage of the best paying investment bank in London, and undertake an interesting and varied role where there is significant development opportunity.
