COMMERCIAL LITIGATION - LEEDS (5-10yrsPQE)

Our national client, in the Top 50, provides a full range of services to commercial clients, public sector organisations and charities across the UK - they have a really diverse client base.

As part of ensuring that they provide the optimum service to their clients, they are looking to recruit to a Litigation Lawyer for their Commercial Disputes team, and this person will be based in Leeds where they have a small but busy unit. Your remit will be to help to deliver a range of good quality commercial litigation work; which will include amongst other things partnership disputes, IT and Technology disputes and financial services litigation. Beyond your own caseload you'll also be expected to assist with the supervision of less experienced colleagues and so you'll be making an important contribution to the department in direct support of the partner. It is reckoned that suitable applicants will have c5-10yrs PQE so as to have the necessary confidence and experience to undertake this role, and to sit between a Partner and less experienced team members.

Ideal candidates will be coming from a large city or national firm with a track record in commercial disputes work, or from a regional firm looking for a step into a higher profile practice. Whilst this is a national firm it is not a huge team and so they want an applied and pragmatic person, someone who has a 'can do' attitude and so strength of character and good communication skills are of paramount importance.

A great opportunity for an ambitious commercial litigation lawyer who is looking to progress.
Florit Brooke advertisements use PQE levels purely as a guide to the level of experience required for the role and this does not prohibit applications from candidates who are able to demonstrate the necessary skills and experience. We aim to respond to enquiries as soon as possible but if we have not contacted you within 5 days then unfortunately on this occasion your application has not quite met the requirements of our client closely enough.
