A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a Litigation Solicitor to join this expanding Dispute Resolution team.
This is a great opportunity for a pragmatic individual who has broad knowledge and expertise in commercial and property litigation matters and who is confident when dealing with clients from modest SMEs to nationally recognised corporations across a range of industry sectors.
To be successful you must be comfortable practising independently, managing your own caseload and able to:
• provide professional, timely, pragmatic and, most importantly, accurate advice on a broad range of medium to high-value disputes;
• have the experience and confidence to prepare all documents (Court forms, statements of case, witness statement etc..) required in fully contested court or tribunal proceedings including pre-action correspondence;
• deal with contentious property matters including:
a. Commercial and residential lease renewals and/or enfranchisement or right to manage.
b. Commercial and residential lease disputes including forfeiture and breaches involving unauthorised use, excessive noise, building/alterations without consent, rent and service charge arrears.
c. Disputes with owners of neighbouring properties over boundaries, trespass, rights of way and nuisance.
d. The termination of leases including dilapidations claims and possession.
e. Property related professional negligence including defective building work and substandard professional advice.
You will possess at least 3 years’ PQE and be a technically strong litigator who enjoys working on a wide range of commercial disputes but with a bias towards property litigation.
