Job Details

Your new company
A global leader in Financial and Risk Advisory, my client is working exclusively with me to hire their next Senior Manager/ Associate Director. With nearly 20 EMEA partners in financial/economic disputes and a similar number of experts in construction/delay , a Senior Manager would typically run 2-3 cases which could be derived/originated in any EMEA jurisdiction and from a number of service lines outside of Forensic, for example Crypto, Valuations, ESG, Restructuring and so on.
Teams are formed around the case on demand, so maximum exposure is guaranteed - you are not "dedicated" to one particular partner or Expert.

Your new role
Cases range from very large, where you'd run a workstream, though to mid-ticket and smaller which you'd run yourself. They typically see large US firms on the other side.
Matters are infinitely varied but regularly feature international arbitration (ICSID, LCIA, UNCITRAL tec) , transaction/M&A disputes, tech/IT disputes, competition matters, negligence/malpractice and more. In the wider Expert ecosystem there are several well-regarded specialists in for example Financial Services disputes and Intellectual Property.

The firm encourage early responsibility and can cite Directors who have testified.

What you'll need to succeed
The firm are open to first-promotion to SM, as well as a lateral move. Either way, your background and ongoing interest will lie in commercial disputes .
This in turn will have been gained in the UK ideally, but commercial disputes profiles from equivalent markets may also potentially be considered.
In all cases, qualified accountant with disputes-centric Forensic career up to, as a baseline, experienced Manager level. And the desire to ultimately be an Expert in your own right.

What you'll get in return

  • Early responsibility
  • Promotion based on doing the right things, not a hard & fast billing target
  • Onward development all the way, from co-signing reports to being the appointed Expert, and facilitating as many opportunities as possible to secure you that first, all-important testifying experience
