Job Details

Are you a Commercial Litigation Solicitor that would relish the opportunity to step into a top international law firm? Our client is seeking applications from Commercial Litigation Solicitors with 2-6 years post qualification experience within commercial litigation to join the team in Leeds.

If you are looking to be exposed to a broad portfolio of clients, then this commercial litigation opportunity with this award-winning firm should stand out. This role is a result of expansion and is the next step in our client's ambition to grow and develop the commercial litigation department in Leeds.

The Role

-In this role you will work on a wide variety of commercial litigation matters and will be exposed to both national and international clients as well as some regional matters.

-You will be exposed to a full mix of matters and the team is currently working on heavyweight disputes within the High Court, arbitration, complex contractual disputes, shareholder claims, fraud, and asset recovery to name just a few.

-You will run your own caseload of complex and high value disputes. In addition, you will also support the team with their high-profile, heavyweight matters mentioned above.

-The team has a respectable number of Partners and Legal Directors, who are highly regarded specialists, in their own right. Combining this experience as a team makes this vacancy a very attractive opportunity for you to grow and develop.

The Person

-You must be a qualified solicitor with 2 to 6 years post qualification experience within another commercial litigation department. PQE is given as a guide and lawyers with more or less PQE, but the necessary skills to undertake this role are of course encouraged to apply.

-You must be technically strong and be driven and motivated to progress and develop your career.

-Our client works closely not just as a team within the Leeds office but also with colleagues in Newcastle and other offices throughout the country. You must be confident working with colleagues remotely and have a real team ethos and mentality.

If you would like to apply for this Commercial Litigation role or would like to hear more about it, please contact Sophie Linley at Sacco Mann or ask to speak to another member of the Private Practice team. Alternatively, if you know of anyone who would be suitable for this role then please let them or us know as we offer a reward for successful referrals. For full terms please see our website.


Sacco Mann are specialist Legal Recruiters recognised as regional experts with a genuine interest in, as well as knowledge of, their marketplace. We are renowned for giving clear and straightforward career advice and true quality of service.

We have thirteen experienced consultants focussing on legal recruitment, encompassing the Commercial, General Practice, Public Sector and In House positions, both permanent and locum. In addition two consultants specialise within the Patents and Trademarks sector.

We feel that much of our success has been due to the fact that we:

- try to accurately guage and understand what both candidates and clients require and indeed that which they are able to offer and then bring the two together
- have a demonstrable knowledge of the marketplace. Fundamentally what you need is not merely someone who can post your CV to a practice, but someone whose strength of contacts within the firms can add value, ensuring that you are given proper consideration
- discuss each role with you thoroughly and get prior clearance before a CV is submitted. This is an extremely important for protecting confidentiality and avoiding duplication
- brief you fully prior to any interviews, ensuring that you know what the role entails and how the interview will be run. We also give you honest interview feedback - if you don't do very well in an interview you can always learn from the experience
- are accessible and return your calls

Principally because we believe that the points outlined above are fundamental. We enjoy recruitment, and we are good at it, because we genuinely enjoy assisting people make positive career moves.

The vast majority of our applicants and clients are at pains to thank us for the advice and service that we provide and we believe the high level of referral business is a direct result of the fact that lawyers value our input.
