A highly successful London Firm are looking for a Commercial Litigation Lawyer with between 2-4 years' PQE to join their ranked team for a contract of 12 months. The role also has the potential to become a permanent position.
The firm has a strong reputation in the market for advising a diverse range of clients spanning high net worth families and individuals, property investors, entrepreneurs, landed estates and family businesses. A significant proportion of their work has an international element.
The Litigation team are well positioned to resolve international and domestic disputes involving contract disputes, partnership disputes, professional negligence, civil fraud, and art disputes.
