Civil Fraud Associate

Civil Fraud Associate

  • About the Firm: Stephenson Harwood is a law firm with 1100+ people worldwide, including more than 180 partners. Our headquarters are in London, with 10 offices across Asia, Europe and the Middle East.
  • About the role: We are currently seeking a Civil Fraud Associate to join our Commercial Litigation team in London.
  • Looking For: We are looking to secure your expertise and desire to specialise on fraud, asset-tracing and injunctions; that you are an ambitious self-starter who is resilient with the ability to handle setbacks and pressure, and is willing to take responsibility early on, is highly desirable.
  • Opportunities: A significant portion of the team's work involves injunctions, including freezing, search and seizure orders, Norwich Pharmacal and receivership orders. Most of our cases involve a number of hearings each year, so there is lots of court work.
  • And more: This is a specialist role within the fraud team, so we are seeking a candidate who wishes to specialise in this area rather than maintaining a broad practice.
