Legal Leaders / Entrepreneurs - We're Looking. Are You?


If you are a partner in an international law firm, or are in a boutique international practice with truly global aspirations, and are interested in leading a global innovative business law firm into its next exciting phase of innovation, and growing your business dramatically, we want to hear from you.

Who We Are

Transatlantic Law International is a dynamic London-based innovator in global business law with affiliated law firms in over 95 countries and with a 21-year track record of success representing multinationals and growing companies worldwide.

What We Are Looking For

We are actively recruiting dynamic partner-level lawyers with significant international experience, who want something different, are excited about the prospect of growing or enhancing their own global practices, controlling their own futures, keeping more of their earnings, and growing and leading our organization into the future.

The opportunity suits those who are thinking about exiting or have recently exited high profile traditional firm roles, or top-level in-house cross-border general counsel who have the desire, proven ability and track record to return to private practice at the highest global level.

In all cases, interested counsel must be self-starting, willing to work in a fast-moving and global environment, and be interested in expanding their own practices further and leading a dynamic, global group on and through our unique, highly successful platform on an international scale, supported by over 4,500 counsel, ready to work for them, worldwide.  

Lawyers can be based in key geographic business centers in the US, UK, or the EU.

We are looking particularly for cross-border generalists, international M&A, commercial and labor law counsel, international property lawyers, global power and energy industry counsel, private equity practitioners, cross-border bankruptcy and restructuring partners, and regulatory counsel with a drive to succeed and lead.

Backgrounds in such specialized sectors as oil and gas, mining, biopharma, and agro-business will be considered if your background is truly international and compatible with a substantial international business law practice.

Candidates must have a minimum of 8 years in international cross-border experience with an international firm, or be at GC or regional GC level in-house with a major corporation, be fluent in English, have a top drawer background, and preferably are conversant in one or more other foreign languages, with excellent blue-chip references and a track record of advising on top-level cross border business law issues.

What We Offer

A future unfettered by traditional law firm hierarchy, the freedom to grow your practice worldwide immediately and keep more of your earnings, and, above all, a real opportunity to lead our organization going forward, supported by an unmatched group of professionals in every country where business needs to be, to support you, and to sustain and grow your practice into the future.

This is not a 'job' but a great opportunity to control your own future, where you work, your work/life balance, and also to be a leader in innovative global law.

Only real entrepreneurs meeting the above criteria, who want something different out of law and life and know how to achieve it, should apply.  

Desired Skills and Experience

We invite only the best of the best to join us and become leaders of our firm.

All candidates should have:
