The job

  • Professional negligence claims, partnership disputes and company disputes - 70%
  • Other commercial and civil litigation - 30%

Developing additional niche work

If you have a niche area of law you have developed or would like to develop in addition to the existing workload, we would love to talk to you about it.

Flexible working

Applications are welcomed from Solicitors and Legal Executives with at least 4 years PQE, or the equivalent.

Your salary will be determined by your experience and billing prospects. This will be discussed more fully during interview. It is likely that your starting salary will be in the range £30,000 to £60,000, plus benefits and pension.
