Full time
Contract type

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Litigator to join a national, award winning law firm that is based in Leeds. The firm is very sector specific and is rated by The Legal 500 and Chambers Directory as the leading provider of legal services to the health sector. This is an excellent opportunity to take on a new challenge and get involved with top quality work within an incredibly supportive and friendly working environment. The firm is renowned not only for the work they do, but also for the work/life balance offered to their employees, coupled with a very competitive salary.

The role
In this particular role you will deal with a combination of property and commercial litigation cases, including general contractual disputes.
You will also get exposure to regulatory work including acting on behalf of statutory regulators in investigations, prosecutions and litigation and public law challenges around their public protection roles.

The candidate

Our client is ideally looking for someone who has between 1- 4 years pqe however this level of experience has been given as an approximate guide for applicants and our client is happy to consider the applications of candidates who fall outside of this level but who have the relevant knowledge/experience, together with the enthusiasm for this particular role.
The firm is particularly interested in hearing from candidates who have previous experience of public sector/public and regulatory law but this isn't essential for the role.
They will also consider a general commercial litigator so property litigation experience isn't necessary for the role.
They are looking for someone who is proactive with the ability to develop client relationships and really drive forward the development of the team.


Exposure to quality work
Excellent career prospects and a healthy work life balance
