One of the UK’s leading law firms have asked our assistance in recruiting a junior to mid-level associate to join its London commodities team. Whilst acting on behalf of major trade clients, the company promotes a well-balanced culture and work/life balance.

The work is purely in commodities, and would involve advising on sale & purchase contracts, contracts of affreightment, charterparties and bills of lading. Responsibilities would also include the handling and running of dispute cases domestically and internationally.

In our discussions with the partner, we asked about the considerable benefits that the team enjoys:

  • The best in their specialism: Ranked top-tier, and valued as indispensable to the firm, the team are extremely sought-after for anything commodities-related, and consistently take their pick of the best cases.
  • Good firm to work for: The company is highly considerate of the wellbeing of its employees, ensuring generous annual leave, health insurance policies, and continued flexibility with working from home.
  • The team’s partners are noted in the Legal 500 for their impressive cooperation and expertise. For an associate still relatively early in their career, this is a fantastic opportunity to develop your skills alongside the best in the business.

The partner will consider applicants with at least two years PQE, and a strong background in commodities work. Must be England & Wales qualified.
