CANDEY is a boutique litigation firm of solicitors and barristers. Based in Lincoln’s Inn, our 39 fee-earners include 7 barristers and one in-house silk. Consistently ranked amongst much larger international firms, we have appeared in some of the biggest commercial cases in the High Court, Court of Appeal and in significant international arbitrations. We combine the best qualities of a chambers with those of a traditional law firm in a thoroughly collegiate environment and supportive culture. We are looking to grow organically through the recruitment of bright and ambitious pupils who we hope to retain on qualification. You will be a team player, with emotional intelligence, intellectual curiosity and commercial nous. Above all you must have a sense of humour.

Our areas of practice are as follows:

Corporate and commercial litigation – We specialise in a wide range of international commercial, financial and technology disputes, including contract, company, joint venture, partnership and shareholder claims.
International arbitrations – We have acted in confidential arbitrations in Dubai, Singapore (SIAC), Hong Kong (HKIAC), UNCITRAL, LCIA and ICC with ancillary proceedings in the Commercial Court in London, the British
Virgin Islands, Hong Kong, Dubai, Singapore, Paris and Cyprus.

Insolvency and fraud – We act for and against receivers, liquidators and administrators, including interim receivers and provisional liquidators.

Lawyers and law firms – We have acted for many departing law firm partners in disputes with their former law firms, and have for many years sued law firms in professional negligence, achieving substantial settlements from their insurers. We regularly work with or on behalf of other lawyers in other jurisdictions, particularly in the British Virgin Islands, Hong Kong, Singapore, Russia, Ukraine and USA.
