Dispute Resolution Solicitor

Dispute Resolution Solicitor , Nottingham

Well known regional firm with an impressive portfolio of clients are now looking to strengthen their team with the appointment of a Dispute Resoultion solicitor who has upwards of 4 years PQE.

It certainly isn't a narrow caseload here so you should have a broad range of dispute resolution experience and certainly if you have specialised in property litigation, insolvency or personal debt recovery those wouldn't be the specialisms the firm are looking for.

Dispute resolution, shareholder and contract disputes are the bread and butter here so you should have frontline exposure in these fields.

The firm have some long standing key clients across a range of sectors, such as IT, manufacturing, various SME's. Payroll and HR companies and all of them have ongoing requirements.

This is a really good opportunity for someone at associate level coming out of a large firm who wishes to be a stand out person in their own right. There are clear paths to progression here as you would be the main dispute resolution fee earner.

Office hours are generally 9 to 5 but if an important piece of work needs to be completed the expectation is that would be done in line with client expectations.

Personality wise you should be a confident communicator. To be internal and extrenal clients. You should be commercially aware. Able to strike deals and add value. Able to spot things early and talk through issues with your clients. Someone who thrives on responsibility is required.

At some firms it can be very easy to "hide" in a big team. What's required here is someone who can be visible both internally and externally and someone who can "get their hands dirty".

The firm competes with the biggest firms in certain areas and that requires well trained, committed, employees to achieve that.

Having work in progress is not a pre-requisite however any such "following" would be looked on favourably in terms of any final salary offer. Salaries are subject to negotiation.

Shortlisting now for this trusted name within the field of Dispute Resolution.
