Job Description

Commercial Litigation Partner – Top 50 UK Firm

Job Type:

Location: London

Job Level: Partner

This leading UK firm has been recognised as a powerhouse for insurance litigation work for some time and continues to go from strength to strength. Well managed with a straightforward and pragmatic approach to growing and developing as a business, the firm has enjoyed considerable success in recent years and represents an outstanding place from which to develop a contentious practice.

The firm’s insurance practice is busy handling a range of complex matters, including coverage and policy disputes and complex international litigation and arbitration matters. It is now interested to talk to commercial litigation partners as it looks to strengthen its practice in this area. It is looking to bring in further experience and expertise to continue the growth and development of its contentious and dispute resolution capability, so there is potential interest in a team move.

Ideally you will have experience of dealing with a range of high end and high value commercial disputes as well as strong relationships which are likely to generate work and a proven track record of winning and handling complex, often international and business critical contentious work. The firm has excellent relationships so there is plenty of scope for your practice to be complementary and/or augmented by the move. The firm is a market leader in insurance already and offers considerable opportunity for an ambitious and able commercial litigator to help it to develop its contentious offering.

This is an excellent place from which to grow your practice whether you are an existing partner or on the cusp of partnership and looking for progression.
