The company is a well established commercial law firm. Located in central London, the firm is seeking an associate solicitor to focus on and expand the Business Immigration team and assist the Head of the Dispute Resolution team.
Responsibilities and duties will include (but will not be limited to) making regular applications to the Home Office, particularly under Tier 1 and Tier 2 of the UK Immigration Points Based System, as well as assisting on a range of Commercial Litigation matters.
The successful candidate will be responsible for managing their own workload, although there will be supervision from one of the Partners of the firm.
The role is open to candidates who have qualified in other jurisdictions (particularly Commonwealth jurisdictions) on the basis that they have had practical experience working at an English based law firm.
The role requires a minimum of 2 years PQE in both the practicing areas mentioned above.
The firm has a large international client base and is currently looking to expand its presence in the Persian Gulf. Due to the nature of the firm’s international client base and its expansion in the region, the role requires the candidate to speak a language from the region (Farsi or Arabic) at professional proficiency. The candidate must have an existing client base and contacts in the region and will have an interest in targeting the Persian Gulf for further expansion. It is also preferable if the candidate has had experience working in an office in the Persian Gulf for an understanding of the business culture.
