Commercial Litigation Solicitor

2-3 years PQE

This is an exciting role for an experienced solicitor with a track record in working on complex, high value High Court commercial disputes, to become a key part of an established team.

The team takes on cases of disproportionately high value, often referred by City firms. This means that they can offer you a varied caseload of claims, including: directors/shareholder disputes, injunctions, banking and financial services claims and breach of warranty claims. Most of the disputes dealt with include an international element.

This hands-on role presents a great opportunity for the right candidate to shine in a small team.

The role involves:
• Assisting senior lawyers with specific tasks on significant, complex cases;
• Managing a small portfolio of your own cases of lower value;
• Dealing with clients, colleagues and counsel on a daily basis;
• Assisting in the team's various marketing efforts.

The ideal candidate:
• Has 2-3 years' PQE with a good track record of working on complex commercial disputes;
• Has experience of working in a commercial litigation department in a reputable, commercial law firm;
• Exhibits excellent interpersonal skills, a collegiate approach and an ability to form strong relationships with colleagues and clients alike;
• Has an ability to prioritise workloads whilst remaining resilient under pressure and competing demands;
• Is a self-starter, motivated to take on new challenges and be capable of working to deadlines;
• Has a positive "can-do" attitude;
• Possesses strong communication skills, a flexible approach and a willingness and desire to accelerate their career through a varied, complex and high value case load.

On offer is a competitive salary and benefits package, along with a firm who has a progressive and proactive approach to training and career progression and a friendly yet professional working environment.
