Commercial Litigation Solicitor (High Value Fraud)

Job Reference No: VAC-19868

Ref No: 3587045

A specialist litigation firm is looking to take on a litigation locum to join a projects team working on a specific fraud case involving a 2 billion case against a Russian bank. The firm would ideally like someone to commit to a monthly retainer of 100 hours if possible but will also consider hourly rate proposals. They are looking for someone to be client facing, demonstrate previous fraud and complex high value case experience and be able to commit to them for some time. The case is likely to proceed to a full hearing and this is at least 12 months away.

Heavy work, not for the faint hearted (their words not mine!).

London firm with central London office location. Some of the work may well be possibly done remotely as time progresses but starting as office based.

At the same time they are also interested in a more junior solicitor to join the team – fraud experience useful but not essential. Also on a locum basis until the case concludes.

Region: Greater London
Country: England
Areas of Law: Fraud
Salary or Hourly Rate: £60 - 80 per hour + negotiable upwards
