WCC and Investigations – Lead the Practice – US Firm
Leading US firm in London with an incredible track record of recruiting talented lawyers. The office will be full service with both US and UK lawyers. The firm is a global market leader in finance and well- regarded for corporate. The partners who have been recruited in London have benefitted hugely from the opportunities that have allowed their practices to truly flourish. In one practice area one partner has recently billed over £10 million and another more recent recruit has billed over £1.5 million in one quarter. The reason for the successes has been a shift towards what partners can do for others rather than becoming completely siloed practice groups. There are a few gaps in London.
WCC & Investigations:
This leading US firm has built a leading investigations practice in the US. The revenues from the practice have increased by almost £100 million in a year. The commitment to the practice is enormous and the firm’s lawyers have been involved in some of largest and most high- profile global investigations. The firm is actively looking for a partner in London and has a fantastic story in relation to this practice area. The firm has worked across a number of sectors and collects premium rates. Specialist practice areas have been hugely successful and there will be an immediate cross over with the litigation and the cyber security teams. As you expect there is existing work in London which is currently been serviced by lawyers in the litigation team.
The firm is more corporate led but, as with all specialist teams in this area, the partners do represent individuals as well. The firm is looking to recruit a well-regarded partner. The firm is open-minded in terms of background but a purely individual- led practice would not immediately fit. This is a great opportunity for a partner looking to join a leading investigations practice with a global reach and lead a team in London.
