Our client is a well rated Legal 500 firm with a sizeable Commercial Litigation team and solid market presence in Leeds in the mid-market. Being part of a firm which has specialist teams in Corporate, Commercial, Banking and Real Estate, this Commercial Litigation team has a great platform and the brand is particularly visible in the Yorkshire business community because of the effort it makes to be involved in the region and it’s commitment to PR and marketing to push its profile and reputation. Long has this firm been a very popular option for candidates leaving the larger national firms, and also for those stepping up from regional practice for a true commercial brand, and in recent years they’ve evolved into being something of an ’employer of choice’ in Leeds.
They are wanting to appoint an experienced Solicitor at c2-5yrsPQE to handle mixed Commercial Litigation. Joining a team lead by 3 partners, you’ll handle a mix of commercial disputes & professional negligence – a whole mixed bag as required by a large regional business base, and some PLCs (Insolvency, Construction, Employment, and IP disputes are all handled by separate specialists within the firm.)
Suitable applicants will have gained good quality Commercial Litigation experience to date ideally with a national firm or recognised regional commercial practice. You will be keen to have client contact and responsibility for your own matters, and this firm places great importance on all its fee earners building client relationships and taking part of networking so you need to be willing to do that. The firm has a truly collegiate feel and has been popular in past years with lawyers tired of the ‘grind’ of practising in Top 25 brands and who instead want a better work-life experience and different level of professional stimulation and satisfaction. A great role for a 2-5yr PQE Commercial Litigation lawyer in Leeds.
A fantastic opportunity for a Commercial Litigation lawyer who wants to be at a firm where being an individual is valued and encouraged.
