Arbitration Associate
2 - 5 pqe
Leading Legal 500
Ranked Team
West End - London

My client a Legal 500 firm based in the West End dealing with complex cross border work are looking to recruit an associate of 2 PQE - 5 pqe to focus on arbitration work as part of a wider commercial litigation caseload.

The dispute resolution team handles a full range of litigation matters often large scale, complex multi-jurisdictional disputes. Typically these include; contract claims, professional negligence, regulatory breaches and financial mis-selling, fraud and asset tracing, the provenance and authenticity of artwork, shareholder claims and derivative actions, and increasingly contentious construction and marine disputes.
They also have significant experience of alternative dispute resolution, in particular arbitration and mediation. They have a growing arbitration practice, covering both commercial and investment treaty arbitrations. They regularly handle high-stakes matters under all major international rules, with a particular focus on the LCIA and LMAA. As the arbitration team is fairly lean, associates are frequently given responsibility beyond their seniority, including leading on written and oral advocacy.
Clients include businesses (private companies, family businesses and partnerships), financial institutions (banks, asset managers and wealth managers), individuals (HNW and UHNW individuals, family offices, established entrepreneurs, senior executives, investors and art collectors) and institutions (sovereign institutions, cultural institutions, universities and schools).
This team are ranked in the Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners for Commercial Litigation and Fraud.


The role will involve dealing with a range of disputes for the firm's clients with a particular focus on arbitration. The caseload is of a very high quality and for the most part the opposite parties in the dispute are represented by City firms.
