  • £85000 - £150000 per annum
  • Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear
  • Permanent

This global law firm are looking for a Product Liability Solicitor to join their exceptional team. They work at the highest level, acting for substantial corporate clients on complex matters from a civil / commercial perspective rather than on criminal aspects. Typically, the matters that they advise on include product compliance, product liability and product recall and are generally multi-jurisdictional and highly complex.

With lawyers across the practice with deep sectoral knowledge to support this team regularly advises household names within the manufacturing, aerospace, automotive, technology, food and chemical sectors.

This sectoral knowledge is hugely valuable and is something that you could rely on within this niche area of work. The firm have an award-winning litigation team, that has always been at the forefront of the market when it comes to investment in technology, delivery, funding and pricing structures etc.

Working alongside a leading partner within this sphere you will have the opportunity to not only manage significant matters but also get involved in the further development of this area within the practice. Whilst this opportunity is for someone to focus on Product Liability work for varied corporate clients, the team sits within the commercial litigation division and if you were keen to retain some diversity, they can structure the role in such a way that you can also undertake some wider work, that would be down to your personal preference.

There's an established team undertaking this work, you would be positioned at a senior level within this, meaning that not only will you lead on many clients matters but also be encouraged to co-ordinate and manage the others that do it.

Furthermore, whilst there is plenty of work there you have the opportunity to assist with the team's growth. They would actively support you in getting to know high risk client partners across the firm, ensuring that you are positioned to further capitalise upon their incredible client list both nationally and internationally. Whilst with modern technology it doesn't necessarily mean that you would have to travel extensively if you wanted to there is certainly the opportunity to do so. Beyond their internal market, they look to speak at conference and position themselves as 'thought leaders' within this interesting and varied sector as well as delivering client training all of which you could get involved in.

Whilst you would have considerable autonomy, there is also plenty of support and it presents a clear opportunity to work towards partnership. Indeed, if you are already a partner, they would be interested in hearing from you but would be looking for you to be able to demonstrate a proven track record as either a recognised lawyer within this work or someone who has a proven track record of generating work. At Legal Director level, or below, that is not required.

To find out more about his role, that offers great career progression opportunity within an impressive global practice, contact Chloe Murphy for a confidential discussion on 0113 467 9783 or e-mail her chloe.murphy@saccomann.com.
