Description

Property Litigation Solicitor

We are delighted to bring to market a property litigation role which is a little different from the norm, with this very highly regarded top 20 national law firm in the Leeds office. They are looking for an able junior litigation solicitor to join the team.

The top 20 UK firm is highly ranked across many practice areas, with nearly 100 ranked UK lawyers and over 100 ranked practice areas, and has a particularly strong reputation in litigation and real estate. They also have strong coverage across Europe, Asia-Pacific, North America and Latin America.

The property litigation team is quite different from those in other law firms, as it operates effectively as an outsourced in-house legal team for a major household name telecommunications company, so for those candidates who are interested in a move in-house, this could be a very helpful platform for the future.

Even though the team operates in this way, for predominantly one major client, the spread of work that is on offer is a truly broad remit of commercial property litigation work, including break notices, lease and licence advisory work, S25 notices, S26 requests, S29B extensions, actions for dilapidations, breach of covenant, injunctions, status of occupation and drafting, issue & service of lease renewal or termination proceedings.

They are looking to recruit an able junior litigator, preferably with a strong grounding in property litigation matters but if not, a thorough commercial litigation background and some decent exposure to real estate matters. It's a close knit team, with a head of department who is friendly, open & thoroughly approachable, whose members work close to the business and take a thoroughly commercial approach, assessing the commercial as well as the legal risks of the matter, which is one of the things that makes this opportunity more of a quasi-in-house role.

The ideal candidate will either just be coming up for qualification or just have qualified, or have up to 2 years' PQE and be confident in all aspects of the litigation process, be articulate and client facing and keen to join a dedicated property litigation team that has client care at the forefront of its objectives.

A very strong market rate salary and benefits package is on offer for the successful applicant.
