International Trade Lawyer - Realistic Partnership Prospects
International law firm with a rated trade team which is recognised globally for its expertise seeks to recruit an additional associate/senior associate possibly partners, into its London team. The trade practice handles both government and private sector work and supports their clients on the full range of trade and regulatory issues both contentious and non-contentious. Matters typically handles include export controls, sanctions, imports, tariffs and customs advice and WTO matters.
Their integrated practice works closely with teams across many jurisdictions providing a seamless service to their clients. Matters are handled are typically complex and often politically sensitive and the practice continues to burgeon notwithstanding the influx of work arising as a result of Brexit. The contentious and non-contentious lawyers work closely together and the workload is broad offering them a variety of cases on both sides.
The required candidate will be at associate or senior associate level possessing several years of relevant post-qualification experience gained from a relevant platform either private practice or in-house.
In addition to the technical skills, the candidate will have the ability and confidence to take a prominent role in the expansion of the UK practice, leading on complex instructions and developing and harnessing their own client relationships. This provides an excellent opportunity for the candidate to progress to partnership. In less specialised areas of law in many firms there is limited scope for their lawyers who are seeking to build their own client base to achieve partnership, and typically will have to do so by building relationships outside the firms own network from scratch, which is not easy.
At this firm you will have access to relevant entities in the firm’s own network which have yet to be capitalised upon. Due to its highly specialised nature and its huge growth prospects going forward, trade finance is one of the few areas of law where there will most likely be a shortage of relevant skillset which has been gained in a top tier firm to meet demand.
All of this provides an attractive proposition for a candidate who wants to make a name for themselves in trade finance and to maximise their career potential.
