Job Profile

Are you looking for the opportunity to work with an exciting and progressive firm which continues to grow? My client is looking for 2 enthusiastic and motivated experienced lawyers to join their busy litigation team.

You will have:-

  • solid experience of civil and commercial litigation work and an ability to run these cases unsupervised
  • a desire to help in the growth of the litigation department
  • great people skills and will be an enthusiastic team player
  • good organisational. time management and IT skills
  • high standards of client care
  • a history of strong billing

The job is suitable for a solicitor or legal executive, or even highly experienced paralegal, with genuine ability and proven experience.

Proven ability in training junior staff would be a bonus, although it's not essential. Experience of successfully running litigation claims using no win no agreements would also be a bonus.


Applicant Requirements

The role is part of a team of 3 litigation lawyers (and a shared secretary and paralegal) dealing with a variety of commercial and civil litigation. It does not involve dealing with personal injury and medical negligence work.

The job will broadly replace the existing caseload of 2 lawyers, with the current caseload split broadly as follows:

  • Lawyer A - Professional negligence claims, partnership disputes and company disputes - 70% and other commercial and civil litigation  30%
  • Lawyer B - A mix of employment law, including settlement agreements, inheritance claims, boundary disputes and other general civil litigation.

However they are happy to consider changing the mix of both work and experience in recruiting 2 new lawyers. To a certain extent, therefore, they may be able to build the role around the successful candidate.
