An excellent opportunity has arisen for a Conflicts Lawyer for a US law firm.

The firm is one of the big hitters in America and has an extremely successful London office, even though it only opened in London a few years ago, it has already won a number of awards. The firm has a mainly corporate practice including financial services, M&A, private equity, funds, restructuring and tax.

The Conflicts team in London is expanding and this is a newly created Conflicts Lawyer role. The team in London works really closely with the team in the US, while maintaining autonomy over the UK and Europe regions. The Conflicts Lawyer can look forward to conducting research and analysing the results, having a high level of responsibility clearing conflicts if they arise and advising the business on the most commercial option.

The ideal Conflicts Lawyer will be qualified in the US, the UK or a similar overseas jurisdiction (for example Australia or New Zealand) and have practiced in an international firm, ideally in a corporate practice area. This understanding of the transactions and clients will be invaluable for this role.

Ideally you will have experience in a specialist conflicts role, however they are also open to hearing from Lawyers who have been exposed to Conflicts issues when practicing and seeking to move across into a conflicts role full time.

Once people join this firm they very rarely leave! Not only is remuneration excellent, there is a great benefits package on offer and a discretionary bonus and hours are fairly standard. They really value their staff and offer fantastic training and continuous development opportunities and they like to promote from within.

Please note this role may also include being sent to the US for training and some travel to overseas offices to give training on conflicts.
