Commercial Litigation Solicitor

  • £120000 - £160000 per annum
  • Leeds, West Yorkshire
  • Permanent

Are you an experienced Commercial Litigation Solicitor looking for a new challenge? Are you looking for a role that offers potential Partnership opportunities? Do you want the chance to build a new department within an internationally recognised firm? If so, this role in the heart of Leeds could be the role for you!

Our client is a leading international law firm with a fantastic reputation and expertise spanning three continents. The firm has a particular specialism within the healthcare sector, boasting an excellent client base of both public bodies and private corporations, and is now looking to expand its Commercial Litigation offering in Leeds. For the right individual, this means a chance to build an entirely new department within the well-respected firm.

Healthcare work from the firm's impressive client base naturally lends itself to potentially marketing for Commercial Litigation work something the firm has not previously done in Yorkshire. This untapped network of clients in the area means the successful candidate would have a high-quality, existing contact base from which to build up work, as well as the firm's already established reputation to aid with business development. Furthermore, the firm handles a strong caseload of dispute resolution work across their other offices and there is the opportunity to support on this while the workload in Leeds is initially being developed.

Developing work from the firm's existing clients means that you will be heavily involved with other teams from day one, allowing you to really become part of the office from the offset. Moreover, the office in Leeds has an incredibly collegiate environment, meaning support and resources are always there when needed. Personality is, therefore, equally as important to our client as professional experience and a like-minded individual, with a great team spirit would be a good fit.

A clear path to Partnership is on offer to the successful candidate, making this an unmissable opportunity for anyone looking to make that step up, it could well suit someone who feels that there is a glass ceiling in their existing firm and who wants to spread their wings. For those who may already be at Partner level, this is a chance to take on a new challenge and become the key figure in the development of the firm's commercial dispute resolution offering in Leeds.

Our client envisages the successful candidate to have 7 or more years' PQE, however this has been given as an approximate guide and our client is happy to consider applications from candidates who fall outside of this range, but who can demonstrate the relevant knowledge and experience needed.
This really is an exciting stage in the growth of the firm and is a fantastic opportunity to take your career to the next level. Why not apply now?
