Job Details

Join a prestigious international, Top 20 law firm that offers exceptionally high-quality work and a platform to springboard your career. The firm is a market leader across many sectors and specialisms. You will be surrounded by heavy-hitting Lawyers, many of whom are individually ranked in the legal directories.

The Firm:

This leading international law firm has offices throughout every major UK city and is one of the largest law firms globally in terms of headcount and revenue. They are ranked Tier 1 in the Legal 500 across an abundance of specialisms and are recognised for their commercial awareness, innovation, and sector knowledge.

This recognition has given them an enviable client base, and you can expect to act for a multitude of multinational PLCs and household names. The quality of work is exceptional, and you can expect to gain exposure to interesting, high-value work.

Despite their size, the firm doesn't have the stuffy, corporate environment that you may expect to find. They have close-knit, collaborative teams that will welcome you with open arms and an active social calendar that will allow you to integrate with your colleagues across the firm.

They also offer a high level of flexibility, with home working commonplace even before the lockdown and reasonable targets that promote quality of service over financials.

The Role:

The firm is looking for an ambitious Senior Associate to join their highly regarded Commercial Litigation team in their recently renovated Manchester office.

Due to the abundance of work, you will be supported to undertake work that suits your background and interests. The team covers a broad range of matters, including commercial fraud, professional negligence, product liability, supply chain, warranty disputes etc. There is a good mix of local and international work, and there is a high level of collaboration between offices throughout the UK and internationally.

As a senior member of the team, you will lead a small group of junior Lawyers and Paralegals that will assist with your cases. This will allow you to develop your leadership skills on your journey to Partnership. You will have a voice in decisions that will affect the department's direction, offering a level of influence unheard of at a firm of this size.

This is a standout opportunity for a Senior Associate to join one of the fastest-growing and most widely respected law firms in the UK. You will be supported to progress your career whilst earning a lucrative remuneration package.


  • You will be a Commercial Litigation Solicitor with a minimum of 5 years PQE (there is no upper limit in regards to the amount of experience)
  • Experience leading a small team would be advantageous
  • Be a commercially astute individual with a flair for business development
  • Able to work closely with colleagues within your team, and the wider department

Apply now for immediate consideration or feel free to give me a call for a confidential discussion.
