Peters and Peters has been ranked as ‘top tier’ by the leading legal directories across its practice for many years. Its key practice areas include: anti-money laundering; bribery and corruption; commercial and trust litigation; corporate investigations, criminal antitrust (cartels); cross-border issues (including extradition and mutual legal assistance); economic sanctions; financial regulation; fraud (civil and criminal); insider dealing; international asset-tracing and tax investigations.

The firm is based in the heart of the legal community on Fetter Lane and prides itself on being able to provide a welcoming, supportive and collegiate environment, exposure to high quality work and the opportunity to work with some of the strongest lawyers in our field.

We have the following associate positions:

  • Business Crime Junior to Mid-level Associates (3-6 yrs pqe) – in addition to general WCC, candidates will ideally have experience of either FCA or sanctions work.
