International Arbitration – Lead the Practice – US Firm

London (Central), London (Greater) (GB)
07 Oct 2016
04 Nov 2016
Contract Type
Full time, Permanent

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 benefited hugely from the opportunities that have allowed their practices to truly flourish.  In one practice area one a newly recruited partner billed over £1.5 million in one quarter, and another recently billed over £10 million.  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.

International Arbitration:

The firm has already made a significant international arbitration hire in the US in 2016.  This is a key area of investment.  There are 70 lawyers globally covering a number of regions (and a strong South American focus). The practice covers both commercial arbitrations and investor treaty.  The London office has passively benefitted from the network and there is a clear gap for an international arbitration specialist to lead and grow the practice in London.The firm's international arbitration practice is a GAR 100 listed practice. 


The firm would ideally like to recruit a dedicated international arbitration specialist.  The firm has a broad practice base.  The London office has recognised that there is real opportunity for a partner and although the partners have looked in this area before there is now a renewed and strategic commitment to hire.  Reputation is more important than following, but a track record of business generation and winning mandates will be required.
