Job description

The Firm & Opportunity

An exciting opportunity for a junior to intermediate Lawyer with at least one years experience in litigation to join a leading dispute resolution team and be immersed in high level work from the beginning. As a firm that is invested in their staff, you will be provided with the right resources and ample amount of training and support from partners as well as the wider team who will help you accelerate your advocacy skills. 

As someone who enjoys being involved in a variety of files from start to end, day to day work will range from contractual claims, professional negligence, insurance-related claims, insolvency/restructuring matters, shareholder disputes, breach of director duties, health and safety and regulatory investigations as well as related commercial litigation work. You will have the opportunity to get involved in High Court trials and develop your oral advocacy skills over time. 

About you:
  • 1+ years' PQE in litigation work with some civil and/or commercial litigation experience gained in a reputable law firm or working with a Barrister;
  • Good communication and interpersonal skills with an ability to cut through issues;
  • Keen to learn and grow your litigation career; and
  • A good university academic record (B average or higher). 
Perhaps you're feeling that you're wanting to work in a flatter team structure having gained experience in a large firm or you're wanting to be a part of a firm that has a culture which helps their lawyers develop professionally and where there is scope for growth.
