International Law Firm Recruitment

Access Elite Multi-Jurisdiction Lawyers, Across the Global Financial Superhighway

There is a growing internationalisation of financial markets and deal dynamics. The rise of high-growth markets in the Middle East, India and South East Asia, has a direct bearing on work done in London, New York, the Bay Area or Frankfurt.
