Employment Law Partner Role
Top Quality Employment Law Work

High Net Worth Work
Legal 500 Ranked Team

Exciting opportunity for an Advanced and Highly skilled Employment Solicitor to join a close-knit, Legal 500 ranked team in London at Partner Level. The role will suit either an established partner or a senior associate looking to take the step up for partnership.

My client is recognised as a leader in the field of employment law in the Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners; specialising in discrimination, whistleblowing and misconduct inside the work place, partnerships, LLPs and academic institutions. The caseload will be fairly largely weighted towards discrimination cases which are large and very complicated, these lawyers challenge settlement agreements and the role would suit someone with a lot of gravitas and passion to handle these sorts of challenging cases. Sometimes the caseload will include financial misconduct issues as well so a largely litigious background is highly preferred.

This role will see you represent Senior Executives, companies, and other institutions in complex, high-value, and legally significant cases. The firm has plenty of work and so you will not be required to bring in a significant following for the move up to partnership. This role is to redistribute the work at high level away from the current partner who would like to concentrate more on business development and firm management.
You will join a team that advise on both contentious and non-contentious matters, represent at mediations, and run litigation both in the High Court and employment tribunals, from the pre-litigation stage through to the final conclusion.

My client is looking to bring on a competent Lawyer who is ready for a high-quality caseload which they can manage independently; developing as a professional within a team which offers a great deal of support. The role will offer equity in due course which will be a exciting prospect in terms of succession for this high flying practice.

The ideal candidate will have:

    • Circa 8+ years of post-qualification experience in employment law;
    • Experience with Senior Executive, claimant and respondent matters
    • Experience with both contentious and non-contentious work;
    • Qualified/admitted legal practitioner in England & Wales.
    • Strong academic background, excellent communication, and organisational skills.

In addition to the high-profile work, the culture that my client promotes is one of a healthy work-life balance, which is reflected in their flexible work-from-home policy and target hours.

Please apply as directed or contact Catherine on 0203 151 2151 for more information as to this exceptional partnership role.
