Commercial Litigation Solicitor
A full-service law firm in Leeds is looking to hire a Commercial Litigation Solicitor for a full-time, permanent role that has been newly created to directly support a busy Partner. This firm has a strong reputation for its commercial litigation work; the department is headed up by an industry recognised Partner with a proven track record in well-regarded commercial firms in Yorkshire.
Your New Role
The firm acts for commercial business clients and on instructions from high-net-worth business owners and investors.
Towards the more junior end of that scale, the Commercial Litigator would need to embrace a lot of exposure and responsibility at an early stage of their career and would be expected to learn quickly. At the upper end of the spectrum the firm would want a Lawyer who is able to function without close supervision, and who is looking for a long-term opportunity in a mid-sized team with regional recognition in Legal 500 and Chambers.
Key areas of focus for the Commercial Litigation Solicitor will include:
- Company law disputes
- Commercial contract disputes
- Shareholder disputes
- Contentious probate disputes
- Disputes arising out of acquisitions and mergers
- Debt collection
- Property and real estate litigation
- IP infringements
- Construction litigation
- Professional negligence
The next recruit will ideally be a junior or NQ Solicitor who demonstrates:
- Up to 3 years’ PQE.
- Good quality commercial disputes experience.
- A genuine enthusiasm for this practice area.
- Exceptional client skills as they will, in time, be expected to maintain and develop existing client relationships.
Salary and Benefits
On offer for the Commercial Litigation Solicitor will be:
- £30,000 - £37,000 per annum
- 25 days’ annual leave
- Enhanced pension
- Death in Service
- Income Protection
- Private Healthcare
When normality resumes our client will be embracing flexible working, with a split of 2 days at home and 3 days in the office available. On that basis, they are keen to consider applicants outside the local area.
