Job Details

Join a prestigious international, Top 20 law firm that has set themselves apart from the competition; this is well demonstrated by the innovative, cutting-edge, and forward-thinking way in which they deliver legal services. They were an extremely early adopter of technology and have used AI to streamline their processes. They continue to achieve year on year organic growth. They continue to receive an abundance of industry and employer awards every year.

The Firm:

With offices throughout every major UK City, and internationally, the firm is Tier 1 in the Legal 500 across an abundance of specialisms. They have been repeatedly recognised for their commercial awareness, innovation, and sector knowledge. This Top 20 law firm boasts over 400 Partners, many of whom are homegrown and have established stellar individual reputations that give them and the firm real gravitas.

The firm has made significant investment throughout 2020, with the Manchester office being a key area of focus for the firm. This is evidenced by the investment they have made into the latest technology, continuously improving the office space, and the number of strategic heavyweight hires made in the last 12 months alone. They have a strong appetite for growth, and 2021 will be no different.

Investment in technology has always been an important part of who the firm is. They are constantly looking to remain ahead of the curve, provide a seamless client experience, and take away the monotonous administrative duties that will free up time to focus on what you do best; deliver top quality client service, build relationships, and generate revenue.

The client base reflects the firm's calibre, reputation, and expert knowledge. You will be representing international clients, household FTSE 250 names, and public sector bodies, making for a challenging, yet interesting and rewarding caseload.

What truly sets this firm apart is their culture. You may expect a firm of this size to have a stuffy, corporate environment, but that couldn't be further from reality. You will find a close-knit, collaborative team that will welcome you with open arms from day one, and an active social calendar that will allow you to integrate and build strong relationships with the wider team. This makes for an enjoyable and stimulating work environment, allowing the firm to enjoy an unrivalled employee retention rate. You will also find that the firm nurtures and develops legal talent; the growing number of home-grown partners well demonstrates this.

The Role:

The firm is looking for a commercially astute, entrepreneurial Commercial Litigation Partner to join their highly regarded Commercial Litigation team, in their recently renovated Manchester office.

You will join an award-winning Commercial Litigation team led by a team of heavy-hitting Partners who are seen as leaders in their field, regularly recommended by clients for their reputation and exceptional level of expertise.

You will work side by side with some of the most technically strong Partners and Lawyers in the UK on complex, multi-jurisdictional disputes. The work is diverse and varied, and you will find yourself acting on behalf of some of the largest corporations in the world across energy, banking, construction, technology, and defence.

This is an exciting opportunity to become a crucial member of the firm, offering a highly lucrative remuneration package, including a market-leading bonus on your billings, your team's billings, and a percentage on any work that you refer to other departments.


* You will be a Commercial Litigation Partner with a minimum of 10 years PQE (there is no upper limit in regards to the amount of experience)
* You will be a commercially astute, entrepreneurial Partner, with experience leading a successful team and undertaking high-quality work
* You will have first-class communication skills
* A transferable client base or existing contacts is highly advantageous

This is a standout opportunity for a Commercial Litigation Partner to join an award-winning, Top 20 law firm in Manchester City Centre.
