Job Description

Our client, a renowned US law firm are seeking a Legal Assistant to join their Litigation/Arbitration department on a permanent basis.

This is a fantastic opportunity to work for one of the world's top US law firms and to work closely alongside some of the most acclaimed Lawyers in London.
