Commercial litigator sought by world-renowned dispute resolution practice.  Home to market leading experts in the field, this practice is particularly well known for dealing with highly contentious court actions, typically very complex, and often involving multiple jurisdictions.
 
This opportunity will suit candidates who prefer to focus on large and complex matters, as opposed to managing a larger volume of smaller disputes.  The world’s largest insured entities turn to this team when they are faced with some sort of “bet-the-company” litigation.  These significant commercial disputes normally involve a high value negligence claim, such as the defence of an international law firm in relation to major losses ensuing from legal advice on a big-ticket transaction.
 
This international firm offers a relatively good work-life balance compared to other top tier litigation practices undertaking similarly high quality work, which may interest applicants at senior associate level who are looking to strike a sustainable balance.
 
The firm’s overall practice composition and client base are such that its fee earners across the board will largely be kept busy during a downturn.  Accordingly, any cost-cutting measures would be extremely limited, and the firm is one of the few that has had the confidence to continue to make well-considered, strategic hires.
