Description

This is a rare opportunity for a Commercial Litigation Solicitor to work in-house for a Manchester based business that lives and breathes philanthropic principles. Social betterment and support for charitable causes is a significant part of the company's business activity and this is only expected to increase.

Our client is currently involved in a number of pieces of high-value and complex litigation which require the skills of an commercial litigator / In-house Litigation Counsel with circa 4-7 years' PQE to own and manage. Reporting directly into the Chair of the company, and working alongside other legal colleagues, the In-house Counsel / Commercial Litigation Solicitor will handle the litigation processes and interactions between the company, senior management and external legal resource - law firms, barristers etc.

In addition to the high-value and complex litigation, which is a mix of legacy matters and new matters coming online, the In-house Litigation Counsel will also be responsible for a broad range of commercial, professional negligence, property litigation and other day-to-day litigation matters.

My client has a small legal team and so it is entirely likely that you will be afforded the opportunity to deal with other areas of law, regulations/compliance and/or commercial matters, should you wish to broaden you experience.

It is anticipated that the In-house Litigation Counsel will have gained broad general commercial litigation skills at a leading private practice commercial law firm. Any in-house experience is advantageous but not a necessity. A can-do approach and a willingness to muck in is definitely an asset.
