Job Details

This major international law firm is investing heavily in its market leading Litigation Practice Group. In line with an ambitious growth plan, the firm is looking to expand it's fantastic team of Professional Support Lawyers and consequently we are briefed on a number of vacancies. This role can be based in Leeds City Centre or at another of the firm's UK offices which are scattered across major UK commercial centres - get in touch to discuss.

This modern team is redefining the role of Professional Support Lawyers and you can expect to be heavily involved with team training and driving technical excellence within the department, as well as providing key updates on the law and practice. You will also get involved with delivering training to clients and assisting with the development of client relationships by way of knowledge management and horizon scanning. You won't be sat in a dusty backroom reviewing precedents, precedent management is a smaller part of the role but you will have a lot of visibility within the team and will play an important part in developing the expertise of fee earners.

Opportunity for career progression is available within this role and you will work as part of a collegiate, dynamic team.

These roles will suit Litigation Solicitors looking to do something a little different - you might be an experienced PSL or might be looking for your first move away from fee earning, the firm is happy to consider either. You will need a minimum of 3 years solid practising experience in Commercial Litigation, Property Litigation, Financial Services Litigation and/or construction litigation. All full / part time and flexible working arrangements will be happily considered - the nature of these roles tends to allow for greater flexibility, given a large part of the role is internally facing.
