Immediate Partnership – Employment Disputes (Employer)
Edwards Gibson has been asked to find a new partner for one of the City’s leading employment law boutiques. Known in the market as one of the go-to firms for employment disputes, the relatively small firm represents mainly employees in both the financial services sector and in industry. It does, however, have a small but developing employer practice that is gaining traction (currently accounting for just under 1/5 of the firm’s revenues). There is a significant opportunity, therefore, to grow this side of the practice. Steering clear of financial services firms, the group represents small/medium size companies and a number of larger corporates in high stakes matters and is keen to hire a dedicated partner to develop this burgeoning work stream.
The firm is seeking a senior associate from a leading employer-focused team, with excellent experience advising on contentious (and pre-contentious) matters to join its all equity partnership. The ideal candidate will have a developing business case, probably in the region of £300,000, and be seeking the autonomy to grow your practice. With the employer side of the business seeing plenty of growth, there is significant scope to develop your business case in the firm. With a merit based lockstep which encompasses work quality, fee-income and wider firm contribution you are sure to be recognised well for your efforts.
The firm itself has a close knit culture – one that promotes collaboration across the firm, not just between the fee earners. This is a rare role to join a small, leading team in a growing and successful firm.
