A highly regarded international law firm is seeking to hire an international arbitration lawyer with investment treaty experience

International Arbitration Associate - Investment Treaty

A highly regarded international law firm is seeking to hire an International Arbitration Lawyer into its growing practice. The team are winning new mandates over and above the traditional players in the market and are therefore expanding. The role will advise on a range of disputes, but specifically in investment treaty and public international law matters.

The firm has a very strong global footprint and a significant diversity of clients. Moreover the firm also attracts a very high number of High Net Wealth individuals from Russia, The Middle East and South America and consequently receives instructions on large scale arbitrations involving their clients and foreign governments. The firm's arbitration department has recently hired a number of well regarded lawyers from a range of other international law firms and is seeking to move up the rankings as a result.

Culturally, this firm is one of the best firms to work in within the City. The work is of the highest quality but there is an emphasis on work/life balance. If you are already in an Investment Treaty practice and looking to move to a better environment, this role could be highly suitable.

Candidate Requirements:

  • Candidates should ideally have between 0 - 1 years' PQE from a leading law firm, either in the UK or abroad.
  • Russian Language skills are required.
  • Demonstrable arbitration experience in investment treaty work is required.
  • Strong drafting experience in English is a pre-requisite. Foreign qualified lawyers will be considered as long as they can fulfil the drafting requirements
  • Strong academics are a pre-requisite. Additionally pre-qualification experience / academics in arbitration are viewed favourably.

In order to discuss this position and other arbitration roles confidentially, please contact James Franklin.
