Wadkins Associates are a specialist transport law recruitment company with a proven and highly regarded reputation in the shipping energy and aviation sectors. We regularly assist talented lawyers, both from private practice and in-house to secure new opportunities in London and internationally.
Our client is unique. As many firms continue to stand with the traditional law firm model our client is paving the way for a new standard, operating as a hybrid between law firms and in-house legal counsel. They advise majors client in the energy and shipping market and offer much more by way of commercial advice to their clients than typically offered by external law firms
They are currently passing a significant amount of work across to other law firms and they are keen to develop a London team to cover this work but also to develop lawyers who are able to provide dynamic commercial advice to their clients. Whilst they are a law firm, the partners don't solely offer legal advice, but also work at the decision making point with MD's to help them scope out viable projects. They then work with in-house legal teams to provide guidance on how to help the board deliver its commercial objectives.
As they become exceedingly busy they are looking to bring a lawyer with transactional experience to the team. The ideal candidate, from their work or training contract, will have 4 to 9 years of experience. Those with trade finance experience will also be considered. They offer a great environment with associates given the same client interaction as partners and salaries in line with city rates.
Wadkins Associates have been impressed with how forward thinking, and driven this team are and we would recommend that anyone looking for an alternate to standard practice to talk to us for a better understanding of the role.
