Head of Financial Litigation

City of Westminster – £65,000 - £75,000

I am pleased to be working alongside a leading firm for the recruitment of their new Head of Financial Litigation. This is an exciting opportunity for someone coming from a senior commercial/financial litigation role looking for their next step.

Due to the current Head of Financial Litigation moving on and a large influx of work coming through the door, the firm need an experienced (ideally 8yrs + PQE) senior commercial/financial litigation lawyer to come in and head the department. You will be given the autonomy to make the role truly your own and you will be essentially running your own firm. You will be co-ordinating a large team of junior and senior staff members, ensuring a large case load is properly managed and therefore experience of managing a team is essential. The firm are undergoing aggressive expansion plans in the coming months and you will be at the forefront of this growth.

The ideal candidate will come from a commercial or financial litigation type role and experience of working on PPI is an advantage. You may be a senior commercial/financial litigation lawyer and looking for your next step or you may currently be a Head of Department and looking for a role that you can shape in to your own. You will be passionate in bringing about change for the firm and will need to share the firms vision. In return for your hard work, you will be offered a highly competitive salary with achievable bonus and excellent benefit package.
