Company: CHASE PORTLAND UK
Job Type: Permanent, FullTime
This US HQ'd Fund is redefining the boundaries of what a Litigation Fund can be and is now rolling out its successful model in London and is on a recruitment drive.
Looking to recruit high calibre associates at around the mid-senior (c.5-8 PQE) level, who are keen to move away from traditional private practice but still retain a big element of litigation within their daily work load but WITHOUT CHARGEABLE HOURS TARGETS
Indeed the Fund has fused the best elements of a both a law firm and a fund and operates, successfully, as both, through identifying opportunities to litigate and providing the liquidity and resources to do so. It retains a small core of practising lawyers but has the resources and operational capacity of a successful litigation. It takes on mammoth cases, which will typically be defended by Magic Circle and large International firms.
Lawyers in the team will be responsible for handling work-streams related to their litigation as well as identifying new business opportunities and spending quality time on theorising about how to win cases (as opposed to worrying about charging out thoughts).
This really is a unique opportunity for a high calibre City Litigator who wishes to move away from traditional private practice but is someone who enjoys the intellectual side of litigation and wishes to operate in a more commercial environment than a traditional law firm.
