Job Details

A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a Solicitor specialising in Commercial Litigation to join a growing law firm based on the outskirts of Leeds.

Our client is a niche boutique law firm who have gained a fantastic reputation in the market. Specialising in healthcare sector clients, they have a number of quality lawyers and paralegals covering various areas of law and an abundance of high quality work. With free parking included, this role should not be missed.

The Role:

The firm is looking to bring a solicitor on board to deal with a commercial litigation caseload. The work will be really broad ranging, acting for a variety of healthcare sector clients and includes breach of contract claims, associate disputes, partnership disputes, debt recovery, insolvency proceedings, trademark infringement, disputes with NHS contracts, property disputes and negligence claims. Due to the close relationship between certain areas of litigation and employment law, our client requires someone who has experience and knowledge in the field of employment law, albeit most employment law matters will be handled by the dedicated employment law team. The firm is open minded in terms of PQE. They will also consider someone with experience who is looking for part-time hours, or someone experienced who is full-time if they have a strong background in networking and business development and potentially some work to bring, although this is not essential.

The Candidate:

The team is incredibly busy and there is plenty of work in the pipeline therefore the successful candidate must be confident in running their own caseload autonomously or with limited supervision.
It would be preferable if you had experience in the Healthcare sector, however, this is by no means necessary for the role. The firm is likely to soon handle some regulatory work, therefore, someone with experience in this area in addition to the general litigation and employment law would be extremely attractive to the firm. If a candidate is NQ, they would need to be able to demonstrate extensive pre-qualification experience in litigation work.


Competitive Salary
Excellent scope for career progression
Free parking

A friendly and supportive environment
