Civil Fraud Associate
Civil Fraud Associate, Litigation, Private Practice, London
Due to huge success over the last year this firm is now looking to expand their litigation team further. They are an American law firm who pride themselves on allowing better flexibility for staff and having a forward thinking approach to law. They have an excellent quality of work, a lot of which is off the back of their very elitist reputation in the arbitration market.
The role has come about as they have been doing an engagement for an International country in relation to court proceedings to expand work by around 9.5 billion dollars. Separately another state has instructed in relation to another dispute. The only real prerequisites are experience within English courtrooms, ideally arising out of arbitration and experience in fraud litigation is also required. You will be applying English tort to set aside arbitrary award on the basis of fraud and potential civil conspiracy to fraud proceedings. Helping out with going through evidence, building case, assisting in drafting of witness statements and expert on Nigerian law (you do not need experience in Nigerian law going into the role). You will ideally be 1-4 PQE (AUS/NZ/UK), however this is a guideline and I will consider outside of this bracket. The firm is based in the city, and they do not have strict billable targets in place. This team is looking to heavily expand over the next year due to excellent work and growth, which they would want this particular individual to be a big part of that.
The firm is looking to hire two individuals, both looking to be 6 month contracts so ideally you will be immediately available. However exceptional permanent profiles will also be considered. Please click "apply now" or email me your CV directly , alternatively feel free to call me on 02034650139.
