Insolvency Litigation Quasi In-House
This is a unique position to move into a quasi in-house role in Manchester. With an excellent breadth of work and opportunity to move away from a traditional law firm model, it presents a rare opportunity for a senior insolvency litigation lawyer.
This position is a quasi in-house role. The legal team in Manchester is headed by lawyers with an excellent calibre and backgrounds working for national law firms. The breadth of work coming into the team is excellent, both in-house, and from the external market - providing an even split. As this is a hybrid role between in-house work (servicing offices national) and external legal work, this offers a rare opportunity to enjoy the best of both worlds - a client facing role with business development opportunities, but without the pressure on billing targets that is expected from a traditional private practice model. You will join a busy, lively legal team in the city centre, with a huge opportunity to move in at a senior level and progress quickly. You will be able handle quality insolvency litigation work, but a broader remit of commercial litigation as work demands. Some desire to supervise would be ideal, as two junior litigation fee earners will work below you.
For anyone looking to move away from a traditional law firm model, but remain in a busy team where you can enjoy the variety of external work, this is a unique opportunity to take a step into a quasi in-house environment. There is a clear route to progress as succession planning is firmly in mind. The team is friendly and warm and eager to appoint the right person, so part time/flexible working will also be accommodated depending on individual needs.
