Securities Litigation Associate – City Law firm

Ref: Securities Litigation Associate – City Law firm MF

This is an exciting opportunity for a mid-level Solicitor Associate to join a well-regarded, full service, City firm’s growing Securities Litigation practice.
This role will report mainly to a partner who has built an impressive reputation as one of the preeminent securities litigation lawyers in the City, with significant expertise and involvement in some landmark cases involving S90A FSMA. As such, this is a great opportunity to further build out an impressive practice with the support and weight of a full-service City law firm.
The firm’s Disputes practice is well-regarded and undertakes a broad range of work, but very rarely if at all repeat work for institutions. This ‘conflict free’ approach has led the firm to picking up some impressive work in recent years. Contentious Regulatory, Corporate Crime and Arbitration work will not really feature in this particular role.
The firm is looking to hire a bright and motivated Solicitor / Associate who is likely to have 2-4 years’ PQE but those with relevant experience, particularly S90A/FSMA and/or Group Litigation are encouraged to apply.
