Highly successful, commercial firm requiring a litigation specialist with not less than 3 years’ PQE.

This new opportunity provides an enviable career move and will appeal to a specialist commercial litigator wishing to practice in Central Lancashire.

The quality of work is exceptional and be assured of a challenging and rewarding caseload.  You will form part of a well-structured Commercial Litigation and Dispute Resolution team, which is retained by an impressive portfolio of corporate and commercial clients some of which are significant names.

We are instructed to recruit a commercial litigator who demonstrates previous experience of handling instructions which involve complex liability issues, high value and multi-party actions. As well as excellent client management and effective negotiations skills, experience of advanced litigation in the specialist divisions of the High Court such as Companies, Chancery and QBD is also required. Whilst all relevant applications will be considered, we anticipate the person’s earlier career to have been with a Legal 100 practice either a large commercial firm, boutique or regional practice.

You will be supporting the head of department in litigation which requires a partner-led, team approach as well as managing your own caseload. You will enjoy working a part of a team and taking responsibility for liaising directly with clients, counsel and experts.

Our client offers a highly professional and flexible environment in which to work. It is a firm which enjoys impressive rates of staff retention and we receive excellent feedback about the firm.
