US Firms

There are now a plethora of established US firms in London, many more who are growing and some who are recent arrivals.  Given the difference in the firms’ origins, size, practices and duration in London they all offer very different career opportunities.

Each of our London consultants has a decade of experience in recruiting in to US firms in London and across their global networks. As such we have excellent relationships with the firms and are uniquely placed to guide you through their practices, culture and approach.

Although the majority of the US firms are transactional focused there are some firms who are full service in London.  Partners and associates are laterally hired in the following areas; corporate, private equity, funds, banking and capital markets, international arbitration/commercial litigation, energy, project finance, restructuring, tax, IP/IT/telcoms, employment, pensions, real estate, and competition. In addition to fee earning roles there are PSL opportunities in corporate, finance and litigation.

Increasingly the US firms are attracting senior lawyers out of the major UK firms who are looking for better partnership prospects and greater breadth to their practice. Added to which the vast majority offer enhanced salaries pitching at either “mid-atlantic” or New York rates plus bonuses.
