Contract type

A great opportunity has arisen for a Commercial Litigation Solicitor to join an award-winning, cutting-edge firm in Leeds. Our client has been organically growing at an impressive yet sustainable rate and has experienced an influx of Commercial Litigation work. This is a great opportunity for anyone looking for top-quality work within a unique and innovative firm.

The Leeds office handle a wide range of high value and complex work. There are two main strands to the work; the insurance role - from a claims handling perspective protecting the insurer and the more general commercial litigation role which is representing the policy holder.

As there has been a significant increase in policy sales our client is looking for someone to be more focussed on supporting the policy side initially, however there would be an opportunity to get involved in the representation side in time.

The firm boasts an impressive commercial client base of predominantly start-up companies and SMEs but also deals with some FTSE 250 companies and some PLC's, some of the cases are also high-profile and receive media attention.

In this role, you will be working both autonomously and as part of the wider team running a caseload with minimal supervision. There is a broad range of work on offer including construction litigation, intellectual property, breach of management company contracts, contractual liability cover and breach of contract.

Our client is ideally looking for a hardworking and committed commercial litigation solicitor who is prepared to deliver first class service at all times. Candidates with 4-5 years' PQE would be ideal, but this is given purely as a guideline and candidates that fall outside of this bracket are encouraged to apply.

Our strength derives from the fact that we are well-known, well-respected and have developed long-standing bonds with both our clients and candidates, and have become an authority on all aspects of legal recruitment.
