About Latham & Watkins

With offices in 14 countries, more than 2,700 attorneys and over 2,500 professional staff, the key to our success and our continued ability to deliver the highest quality service to our clients is our “one-firm” culture – a spirit of teamwork and shared commitment to quality across our global offices that has long distinguished Latham from other law firms.

As a Knowledge Management Lawyer working closely with the London Corporate partners focusing on UK ECM, PCR and Public M&A, you will be responsible for monitoring legal, regulatory and market practice developments. Key responsibilities include:

* Preparing tailored thought leadership materials for clients relating to ECM, PCR and Public M&A matters (including in pitches, newsletters, presentations, client alerts and blog posts)

* Drafting and maintaining Latham standard forms and practice notes

* Identifying, collecting and organising knowledge assets in the relevant KM databases

* Providing substantive training to associates and trainees on ECM, PCR and Public M&A matters and on the use of forms and precedent materials

* Working with partners and associates to support the delivery of the KM effort, coordinating their involvement, seeking partner feedback and review as required

* Generally acting as a sounding board for technical legal queries from partners and associates and supporting their preparation for client or industry presentations and round tables.

About you

Apply to join our team if you are:

* A solicitor qualified in England and Wales

* Highly organised with meticulous attention to detail

* A self-starter willing to take the initiative to advance the firm’s ECM, PCR and Public M&A practices and perform responsibilities without close supervision.

and have:

* A Bachelor of Laws (or equivalent)

* A minimum of five years’ post-qualification experience as a practicing lawyer in a leading international law firm, with extensive technical knowledge in UK ECM, PCR and/or Public M&A

* Outstanding communication skills, both written and verbal, and the ability to interact effectively with people at all organisational levels of the firm

* The ability to work independently on and deliver projects of significant complexity on a timely basis.

Successful candidates will not only be provided with an outstanding job opportunity and welcoming environment, but will also be provided with a generous total compensation package with bonuses awarded in recognition of both individual and firm performance. Eligible employees can participate in Latham’s comprehensive benefit program which includes:

* Health insurance as well as group income protection and life assurance

* Wellness programs (e.g. membership to HeadSpace, access to mental health services, well-being events, etc.)

* Professional Development programs

* Employee discounts

* And more!

Additionally, we have a range of global affinity groups (including LGBTQ group, multicultural group, women’s group). These provide a platform for staff to share experiences, advice, and interests, encouraging a continued discussion on diversity.

Latham & Watkins is an Equal Opportunity Employer. Our commitment to diversity, equal opportunity, pro bono work and sustainability enables Latham & Watkins to draw from a remarkable wealth of talent to create one of the world's leading law firms. Our lawyers, paralegals, and professional staff worldwide comprise a rich mixture of different races, ethnic backgrounds, religions, sexual orientations, cultures, and primary languages.
