Job reference:
This vacancy has now expired.

Do you fancy working in beautiful York city centre but still want a quality of work and environment that you think may only be available in Leeds? If so this could be the role for you.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a successful commercial litigation team, working alongside a high quality partner who has previously worked within international firms. Our client is a full service firm, with ambition to grow by further developing the strong base that they have already created whilst preserving the reputation they have for delivering first class legal advice to their clients.

The firm is looking for a junior lawyer to work closely with the partner within a small but growing team. Whilst they are looking for a junior lawyer they are looking for someone who is happy to work with the team in further developing the clients and helping to generate more work from both existing and new clients. This will give you an excellent opportunity to develop these very important skills right from the start of your career, but at a stage where there isn't the expectation on you to bring work in.

There is a broad caseload to pick up which covers a full spectrum of commercial litigation matters, you will be able to get stuck into anything from general contract disputes to intellectual property claims and contested debt. They do have someone in the team who focuses on property litigation work but there may be the opportunity to get involved in this from time to time if it's something that you are specifically interested in.

The team have a diverse client base that includes acting for companies, utility companies and financial institutions covering a wide geographical location too. The firm are known for having good IT and support in place that reflects the quality that you'd expect from a bigger firm.

Our client is looking for a Solicitor who is newly qualified up to 2 or 3 years PQE with litigation experience, whether that be a 6 month training seat or post qualification experience. There is plenty of opportunity in this role to really build relationships with clients so this position would suit someone who enjoys speaking to and meeting with people.

The team also get involved in seminars to help co-market the department alongside other commercial teams within the firm. The firm is really looking for someone who has great technical skills, is commercially aware, confident and who will really throw themselves into the work on offer.
