Our client, a full-service firm, has selected Jameson Legal to assist in the search for a new litigation team. This truly global law firm has a strong international litigation presence, but has a big gap in New York City. They are looking for a hungry Partner with a portable book of $1.5m+ to head up the team and assist in its growth.
The firm is headquartered in Texas; as such it takes pride in its fantastic ethos and focus on wellbeing and maintaining a healthy work/life balance. Its Partners and Associates are involved in business development and are encouraged to be leaders in knowledge management and leading diversity or pro bono initiatives.
One of the key sells of this law firm is that while it pays market rate, it tries incredibly hard to keep away from the ‘BigLaw’ experience – everyone is encouraged to fully take their vacation leave and turn off their phones while they are away. Caregiver leave is very generous and the culture is described as ‘kind and considerate, down-to-earth’ and a place where ‘a lot of people have families’.
Candidates must be qualified in New York.
