Experience Level

In the US, this law firm was one of the most prolific partner hirers of 2019.  Hence it comes as no surprise that the firm’s management is decisive and efficient when hiring partners in London. With a recent high-profile team hire in 2020, the firm has now properly launched a litigation practice in London and remains committed in the second half of 2020 to grow a significant contentious practice. Consequently, the litigation team will have one of the largest number of lawyers in London of any of the non-merged US firms.

Over the last 10 years or so, the absence of a litigation practice in London has meant there have been a number of lost opportunities which has been frustrating for the US partners, who have needed to refer significant matters to other firms in London.  One particular matter commenced in the US a few years ago but needed substantial UK litigation capacity, although a US partner has remained a trusted advisor to the client, a London litigation team benefitted to the tune of many millions on the first phase of this case.  Yet with the hire of the team, the next phase might be able to be run from the London office, and a financial services regulatory enforcement partner will need to be hired.  This is quite an unusual and very exciting opportunity; the client is globally recognised, and you will need to have a good reputation in the market.
