Commercial Litigation Solicitor

  • £50000 - £75000 per annum
  • Leeds, West Yorkshire
  • Permanent

This is a fantastic opportunity for a Commercial Litigation Solicitor to join a growing team in central Leeds. The firm is a major international commercial player and has all of the infrastructure and impressive client roster associated with that profile, however the team locally is in its early growth stages under the leadership of recently recruited Partners who are taking it from strength to strength. You will have the benefit of working closely with and learning from these experts.

If you are looking to be exposed to a broad portfolio of clients, then this commercial litigation opportunity with this award-winning firm should stand out. This role is a result of expansion and is the next step in our client's ambition to grow and develop the commercial litigation department in Leeds.

The Role

- In this role you will work on a wide variety of commercial litigation matters (including procurement related disputes) and will be exposed to both national and international clients as well as some regional matters.

- You will be exposed to a full mix of matters and the team is currently working on heavyweight disputes within the High Court, arbitration, complex contractual disputes, shareholder claims, fraud, and asset recovery to name just a few.

- You will run your own caseload of complex and high value disputes. In addition, you will also support the team with their high-profile, heavyweight matters mentioned above.

The Person

- Our client is seeking applications from Commercial Litigation Solicitors with 1+ years post qualification experience (given as a guide) to handle a wide range of general commercial litigation and procurement disputes (an interesting and niche area to work in as part of a wider caseload, which will see you working with some major public sector bodies such as the NHS).

- Our client works closely not just as a team within the Leeds office but also with colleagues in Newcastle and other offices throughout the country. You must be confident working with colleagues remotely and have a real team ethos and mentality.
