Our client is a boutique commercial law firm with a particular focus on commercial litigation work, headed up by an industry recognised Partner with a proven track record with well-regarded commercial firms in North West.
The firm acts for commercial business clients and also on instructions from high net worth business owners and investors.
The role has been created to work directly in support of a busy Partner. The next recruit will ideally be a newly qualified solicitor up to 3 PQE with good quality commercial disputes experience and with a genuine enthusiasm for this practice area.
The successful candidate will need exceptional client skills as they will, in time, be expected to maintain and develop existing client relationships.
Candidates from NQ to circa 3 years PQE will be considered on their merits, financial expectations and commercial experience.
Towards the more junior end of that scale a candidate would need to embrace having a lot of exposure and responsibility at an early stage of their career, and would be expected to learn quickly. At the upper end of the spectrum the firm would want a lawyer who is able to function without close supervision, and who is looking for a long-term opportunity in a mid-sized team with regional recognition in Legal 500 and Chambers.
The firm in question is able to provide a full dispute resolution service in areas such as:
- Company law disputes
- Commercial contract disputes
- Shareholder disputes
- Contentious probate disputes
- Disputes arising out of acquisitions and mergers
- Debt collection
- Property and real estate litigation
- IP infringements
