We are lawyers who think strategically as well as legally, and provide our dispute managers with the resources they need to use their skills to the fullest

Key responsibilities:

Our highly successful real estate litigation team advises on all property related disputes and portfolio management issues.
The role involves working on a broad range of property related problems for a range of clients including occupiers, investors, developers, financial institutions and government agencies.

You will be working within a team, reporting to several supervisors.

Skills and experience:

The candidate will be a graduate, ideally with an LPC, or ILEX with at least 1-2 years' work experience in a legal environment. Property or Litigation experience would be an advantage, however, we are open to all candidates who can demonstrate necessary skills. You will need to be able to demonstrate exceptional organisational skills as well as high attention to detail. You will provide a first rate client service both internally and externally. We will consider applications from exceptional candidates with strong non contentious property experience and a commitment to developing a contentious career.

Key competencies:

You should be a proven team player, client focused and a good communicator with a strong practical approach to your workload and good attention to detail .

Real estate litigation experience is preferred but candidates with strong property experience and a willingness to develop will also be considered They will require excellent IT, administration and organisational skills, together with excellent written and verbal communication skills.

We are a modern, progressive law firm. We think differently and we've built a culture where individual skills and personalities can shine through. At Eversheds, we believe that innovation comes from a culture of genuine equality and diversity and we are happy to discuss any reasonable adjustments individuals may require in the recruitment process, or once in post.
