Competition and Markets Authority (CMA)

Senior Litigation Director

Salary: £128,966 to £149,999 per annum

Location: London

This is a unique and exciting opportunity to lead the growing litigation function of one of the world’s top competition authorities.

The CMA has a wide and growing range of powers, which it uses to undertake a wide variety of cutting edge, high profile and complex work, spanning merger and market inquiries, competition and consumer law enforcement, subsidy advice and internal market advice. If you motivated by a dynamic and challenging environment where you will be a highly influential senior leader shaping the CMA’s essential work in the public interest, playing a pivotal role in the leadership and management of CMA’s highly talented litigators comprising approximately 45 lawyers, then this could be the ideal role for you.

As Senior Litigation Director, you would become a member of the Senior Leadership Team within the CMA’s Legal Service, reporting directly to the Deputy General Counsel. Your role will encompass a diverse array of challenging and pivotal activities, including defending the CMA’s decisions on appeal, obtaining warrants to support our investigations and obtaining director disqualification orders. The volume and profile of the litigation we undertake has increased substantially in recent years and is expected to grow further in light of the expansion of our case work following EU Exit and the addition of new CMA functions.  

You will be an accomplished senior litigator with outstanding experience in litigation casework, including recent experience of competition law, public law and/or consumer protection law, and a proven track record for strategic thinking. You should possess a deep comprehension of the policy dynamics and prospects confronting the CMA, along with extensive experience in cultivating, empowering, and inspiring professional teams to achieve exceptional outcomes. Your personal integrity and capacity to integrate substantial subject matter expertise with strategic acumen and operational excellence will not only be critical to excelling in this role but also to advancing our mission.
