Commercial Litigation Solicitor

A fantastic Associate or Managing Associate level commercial litigation role is on offer in Leeds. Roles at this level don't come up very often and we are very pleased to be working with this extremely popular top 40 national firm to recruit a commercial litigation solicitor to its established commercial dispute resolution team based in the Leeds office.

Our client is pitching this opportunity at Associate or Managing Associate level and they are interested in hearing from lawyers with at least three years' PQE, who will be operating reasonably autonomously across a broad range of commercial disputes, and feel comfortable engaging in business development. In this role, you will work with some fantastic people and will play a key role in partnering with clients (FTSE 250 clients including national household names in the transport, financial services, chemicals and manufacturing sectors among others) to resolve a truly diverse range of disputes as well as playing a key part in mentoring and supervising technical work within the team.

The spectrum of commercial disputes is diverse and no two days are the same - your work could include commercial contract disputes for engineering companies, to advising on partnership disputes, through to disputes emerging from their corporate, banking and public sector teams, and everything in between, as well as the occasional obscure, impossible-to-pigeonhole dispute that gets the heads scratching. Expect a decent amount of intellectual challenge.

The role is essentially a number two in the department role, and as the team further grows, the progression possibilities are exceptional.

Our client would love to hear from litigators who are either already building a specialist reputation in areas such as financial services, data protection, retail or transport or true commercial litigation generalists with great broad based experience who can bring commitment, confidence and a commercial approach. This is an ambitious firm with an entrepreneurial spirit - they are looking for someone with a similar outlook.

The right candidate will have strong academics and first rate experience gained at a City or leading regional firm, be friendly practical and outgoing, ready to roll their sleeves up and get stuck in to an interesting range of work. You'll also be ambitious with your eye on progression and a keenness to help develop the team's client base. This is a one partner team at the moment and there's plenty of room for another partner as the team grows further over the next twelve to twenty four months.

Working with the highest calibre clients, in a collaborative collegiate environment, we believe this is a unique opportunity for the right person. Our client's culture is focused on their people - they place real value on personal development with a transparent lawyer career framework and a transparent and very achievable bonus structure. Coupled with the chance to learn from leaders in their field and a team with ambition to grow, this role offers a true opportunity for personal and professional growth.
