At 3+ PQE, are you looking for an alternative avenue for progression, feeling a PSL role that offers continued career development from the onset is for you?

Utilise your litigation skills to full effect within one of UK's leading PSL team, who set the mould as to how knowledge, best practice and market anticipation is done.

The Firm:

This leading international law firm has offices throughout every major UK city and is one of the largest law firms globally in terms of headcount and revenue. They are ranked Tier 1 in the Legal 500 across an abundance of specialisms and are recognised for their commercial awareness, innovation, and sector knowledge.

This recognition has given them an enviable client base, and you can expect to act for a multitude of multinational PLCs and household names. The quality of work is exceptional, and you can expect to gain exposure to interesting, high-value work.

Despite their size, the firm doesn't have the stuffy, corporate environment that you may expect to find. They have close-knit, collaborative teams that will welcome you with open arms and an active social calendar that will allow you to integrate with your colleagues across the firm.

They also offer a high level of flexibility, with home working commonplace even before the lockdown and reasonable targets that promote quality of service over financials.

The Role:

3+ PQE Commercial Litigator to join Cardiff PSL team in Cardiff Top 50 international firm.

Due to investment and looking to nurture talent across the wider litigation team, a technically excellent commercial litigator has the opportunity to join Wales' leading team, orientated globally and in support of some of the largest organisations that sit in numerous sectors.

In developing fee earner expertise, delivering training and working cross office in anticipation of market changes and headwinds, your influential role in the wider business will see you engage with colleagues at all levels of the company.

Keen to welcome those with experience in one or more areas, such as commercial disputes, international arbitration, financial disputes, white-collar, real estate and construction. Your experience in supporting colleagues blended with legal acumen will be met with ongoing professional development, often lacking in PSL roles elsewhere.

The role allows for majority home-working long-term if preferred.
