ChaseBridge - Our Work

Please see below the depth and breadth of our work. This is only a small selection of the total projects we have undertaken over the years:

Partners and Teams

We were key advisors on merger plans between two highly regarded city firms, both in the top 100.

  • Conducted an exclusive search for a major Wall Street firm to find a corporate tax partner. We found and placed a rising star from a magic circle firm.
  • Completed an exclusive search for a city insurance, projects and construction firm looking to develop its corporate finance service line. We sourced a senior partner and team from a direct competitor who arrived with new clients.
  • Completed a search for a head of employment role with a top 50 UK practice, highly rated in the employment sector. We sourced and placed a rival head of employment from a respected regional practice.
  • Worked on an exclusive search for a property finance partner for a top 15 practice. We found a partner and assistants who joined from a magic circle firm.
  • Completed a search for a major city law firm to source a banking team with specialist experience of structured finance, derivatives and acquisition finance. We placed a team of lawyers in a move which was well documented by the legal press.
  • Worked on a search to find a property litigation partner to join a profitable mid sized city firm. We sourced and placed a specialist from the London office of a leading national practice.
  • Instructed by a city firm with a leading charities reputation to find a partner. We sourced a rising star from a highly rated charities practice.
  • Completed an exclusive search on behalf of a leading US law firm to find a share schemes partner in London.
  • Worked on an exclusive search for a respected city law firm to find a construction partner. We found our client a well known “name” in the construction market.
  • Conducted a search on behalf of a highly regarded property development firm to find a partner with specific expertise in regeneration projects. We sourced a “leading individual” with a book of business.

Associates

  • We were retained by a major city law firm on the development of its construction team on the non-insurance side of the business. We sourced and placed three non-contentious associates and a litigation assistant from leading firms.
  • Worked on a search for a New York practice in London to source banking and commercial lawyers within project finance. We found three associates from top tier departments.
  • Instructed on a challenging mandate by a city firm advising lenders to put together a team of mortgage repossession lawyers. We identified a network of specialists from scratch and successfully brokered a team move.
  • Exclusive mandate to find a number of insolvency and insurance litigation associates for a top 50 law firm. These roles were successfully completed with assistants sourced from larger firms.

Individuals

  • Worked exclusively on behalf of a leading corporate partner with expertise in the technology sector. We helped this partner and his team move to a leading US law firm in London.
  • Advised a project finance partner and his team of assistants with portable clients worth circa £2million in a move to a leading international firm.
  • Advised a senior pensions professional support lawyer. Using our knowledge of this sector we successfully introduced our client to a select number of law firms resulting in three offers, one of which was accepted.

Over the years, we have worked exclusively on behalf of hundreds of partners and associates in a variety of disciplines. Outlining each one would make this list far too exhausting!

In-house

  • Worked on a search for a US investment bank to find a senior lawyer to join as head of capital markets for the EMEA Region. We found a leading lawyer from a New York law firm.
  • Won a number of searches from the European head of legal at a leading investment / financial advisory company. We helped build the department by sourcing the following:
  1. a senior corporate lawyer from a Wall Street firm in a combined legal and commercial role;
  2. a senior magic circle property finance lawyer to work in the transaction management group;
  3. a senior funds lawyer from a top 10 city practice and;
  4. a senior associate from a top 10 practice who joined as general counsel.
  • Instructed on a general counsel position for a worldwide household name in the hospitality sector.

International

  • Worked for a Swiss bank to find a structured finance / derivatives lawyer in Tokyo.
  • Instructed on a number of partner and assistant searches in Moscow in the project finance, capital markets and banking sectors.
  • Completed a complex search for a leading US law firm to attract a senior lawyer to work across various disciplines within project finance (banking, corporate and commercial). This role was particularly challenging as we had to deliver a shortlist of candidates who not only had the breadth of skills required but who were also willing to relocate to Tashkent, Uzbekistan. We sourced and placed a senior associate with specialist CIS experience from a major international firm.
  • We have worked on a number of specific instructions across the banking, corporate, project finance and construction sectors within the Middle East.
