Our Client is a long established but progressive 11 partner firm based in Hertfordshire.  The commercial and private offerings are currently roughly of the same size but the former is growing at a faster rate. 

The Commercial Litigation team currently consists of 1 partner and 3 other solicitors. The team was ranked in the 2014 edition of the Legal 500.  They aim to provide the highest standard of service and quality of work to our many longstanding clients.  They also aim to grow the team in the future.

The Role:
