2019 New Instruction - Commercial Litigation

Head of Department - North West

£100k + benefits - no following required

We are looking for a senior commercial litigator to head up a team of 15 lawyers based across a handful of sites in the Greater Manchester / Cheshire area. This is a head of department role and envisaged to be a FSE or Salaried Partner role initially with a view to short / medium term progression if desired. No following is required as this is a succession planning role, although (as ever) an ability to undertake BD, develop client relationships and to win work is expected in a role such as this.

Work covered by the commercial litigation department is varied and includes general commercial disputes, professional negligence, breach of contract claims, partnership disputes, shareholder disputes, commercial debt recovery, insolvency and enforcement proceedings, banking and financial services claims and minor amounts of property litigation.

Package is expected to reach £100,000 pa for the right candidate who can demonstrate leadership and management qualities and the ability to attract work and develop and expand a team.

Role will be mainly based in the Manchester / South Manchester area with travel to the other offices as required.

For more information, please contact Dawn Everton on the details provided.
