This small US firm has always had a strong focus on real estate, and this has been a key driver in the growth of the firm in the UK, and will continue to be post-Brexit.

The firm has grown the London office strategically over the last few years, but despite this growth, it has retained its collegiate culture and is a genuinely nice place to work. After a number of headline partner-level hires from top US and UK firms, the London office now boasts a team of lawyers of the highest quality.

A key sector for the firm is the hospitality industry. The firm holds a number of marque owners, operators and brands as key clients, and has recently seen a surge of instructions. The team is therefore in need of a senior associate to support partners across the practice.

The ideal candidate will have at least 5 years’ experience since qualification and either be in a leading law firm in the City or currently in-house at an owner or operator seeking to move back into private practice. You will have significant experience of commercial contracts in the industry and in particular be familiar with operating and management agreements including franchise, management, outsourcing and technical services agreements in the hospitality industry. You will work with a partner with an excellent reputation in the area and will be supported and encouraged to build your practice, with extensive progression prospects ahead.

This is a fantastic opportunity for an ambitious lawyer who wants to take on more responsibility and work with some of the best clients in the market. The firm will offer you a friendly atmosphere, a variety of work, and excellent prospects for career progression.
