Commercial Litigation Solicitor

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join one of the largest commercial litigation teams in the North. This major global player is looking to recruit a junior solicitor to join the team in Leeds.

The team is top ranked for commercial litigation in the region, with an enviable client base of regional, national and global clients. They benefit massively from the strong corporate practice at the firm, with a steady flow of major dispute referral work coming from established corporate clients.

The team works across a number of sectors, including energy, healthcare, aviation, transport, retail and manufacturing, dealing with a wide array of major corporate disputes, IT resourcing disputes, aviation disputes, judicial reviews and large scale contractual disputes, including significant reported judgments.

The team really invests in its people, it aims to recruit for the long term, supporting its lawyers to develop their skills and work towards their chosen areas of expertise. Relationships with major clients are incubated from an early stage and junior lawyers are also encouraged to develop their own networks.

Because the team deals with a number of large scale disputes at any one time, it is structured so that no one member of the team feels alone working on a major case, but is always part of a sub-team working together and always has a varied caseload to work on.

Demands are high in a top ranking global firm, but at the same time there is genuine flexibility and agile working is the norm.

They are busy and are now looking to take on a junior solicitor, either someone recently qualified, coming up for qualification with a significant commercial practice, or a lawyer with up to around three years' PQE, with solid academics and the drive to move their career forward in an intellectually challenging but rewarding working environment.
