About the job:

Our client is a highly respected U.S. law firm with a growing London office. The office now has over 50 lawyers in London and is rapidly expanding. One of the areas where it seeks to grow is real estate. With a small number of highly respected partners, it is underweight at the associate level, even though it has a top notch practice. It now seeks to expand its offering and you can be part of that growing success story. You must be 2-5 PQE. We shouldn’t need to spell it out; dear reader as you are, of course, a highly intelligent and busy associate at a well-regarded practice, but just to be clear: where a department is partner heavy and in the context of a growing office, there are two things that will happen: first you get plenty of partner access and responsibility off the bat. You get to be in the second chair. Secondly you get real client facing work. That means that as the office grows and your client relationships become stronger and deeper, you will be critical to the firm and to the client. Those, friends, are the magic ingredients to partnership promotion. Taking a long term view of your career is perhaps hard in this day and age, but you need to position yourself appropriately. If you are ambitious and motivated with a can-do attitude, then you should apply whilst this opportunity is still open.
