Senior Litigation Lawyer

Our client, a US law firm, are looking for a senior litigation lawyer to join their Latin America practice in São Paulo. The team advises the firm’s premium client base in Brazil and Latin America on a broad range of high-value and complex international disputes.

The successful candidate must be admitted to practice law in the US and/or England & Wales. Due to regulatory restrictions, our client will not be able to consider candidates admitted to practice law in Brazil only.

The ideal candidate will be an experienced litigator with at least eight years of post-qualification experience from a recognised litigation practice, ideally in an international law firm. Some knowledge of fraud or asset forfeiture would be beneficial, although not required.

Our client is particularly interested in ambitious and commercially minded individuals keen to take their careers to the next level by taking on greater responsibilities and supporting the existing partners through business development initiatives in the region.

The new hire will play a role in the firm’s growth strategy in the region, bridging the gaps between its network of lawyers across the globe and the complexities and particularities of Brazil. For that reason, the successful candidate will be fluent in Portuguese and thoroughly understand the Brazilian market.

This position offers a highly competitive remuneration package and realistic partnership prospects for the right candidate.
