Join a small but rapidly growing boutique Litigation firm as they look to expand the team for the third time in the past 12 months. The firm specialises in a range of contentious matters, including financial services, competition, consumer protection, transport, sports, and entertainment. Over the past couple of years, the firm have won several high-profile cases, and their competition often comprises the top City law firms.

This is a unique opportunity to be part of an upcoming law firm at an exciting stage of its development. You will gain invaluable experience across all aspects of litigation, client service, and business development. Working in a close-knit team, you will have exposure to interesting high-value work on behalf of a varied client base and will have the opportunity to progress and grow with the firm.

You will undertake cases across a broad range of causes of actions such as competition law and consumer law, and will focus solely on claimant litigation. You will be involved in the UKs most high profile collective actions, making for an exciting and varied role. As well as running your own caseload, you will be involved in business development in order to drive the growth of the firm further forward and you will be an integral part of the firm's long term vision.

This is a genuinely outstanding opportunity to be an integral part of some of the most rapidly developing areas of law. Although experience within collective actions will be advantagous, it is not essential, as long as you are willing to learn and have an interest in this area of law.

The ideal candidate will:
  • Be 5+ years PQE (applications will also be considered that fall outside of this)
  • Ideally some experience in competition law or collective actions
  • Strong academic track record (ideally 2.1 or above)
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills
  • Able to work independently and as part of a close-knit team
  • Experience handling complex litigation
  • Be commercially aware and a keen business developer

If you are a Senior Litigation Solicitor who is looking to join an upcoming Boutique law firm at an exciting time in their development, and want to undertake interesting, high quality work, this is one not to be missed. The firms offers a highly competitive package, including bonus, and a flexible working environment with home working commonplace. You will be based out of their modern, City office but have the option to work from home on a regular basis.

Apply now for immediate consideration.
