Job Details

Considering making a career move and want to be with one of the most prestigious Commercial Litigation teams in the North, if so you should read on.

This Commercial Litigation team have a fabulous reputation and rightly so! They act for top flight clients, not just clients of the practice but clients who actively seek them out purely for Commercial Litigation work too. The work that they do doesn't stop at the boarders, there is an international perspective to it as well. It is genuinely broad ranging and includes:

  • typical corporate and commercial disputes
  • IT ( public and private)
  • International Arbitration (they are one of the few firms who offer genuine access to this from Leeds)
  • Substantial Procurement Litigation

You'd have the opportunity to take on the general corporate and commercial litigation and blend it with one or more of the above areas. As the work is of exceptional quality you will largely find yourself working as part of a larger team on matters, that said where there is opportunity for you to take on your own cases they will encourage that.

This team have had success in recruiting Lawyers from a wide variety of backgrounds, consequently as well looking at people from peer firms or London relocators they are happy to consider people who may be foreign lawyers with relevant experience of the appropriate quality, or those from smaller local firms with the desire and capability of stepping up (a strong academic background would be helpful). They are also happy to consider lawyers currently working in a niche area of litigation and looking to broaden that into a wider range of Commercial Litigation, they are conscious that often people can get 'stuck' in a niche too early and may want to diversify.

This is an excellent Commercial Litigation opportunity to join a genuinely collegiate team where you can undertake high calibre litigation and get fabulous support, whether that be on the job or via classroom training, to be a really high quality Commercial Litigation lawyer and achieve some of the best rewards available within the market. The practice also provides opportunity to get involved in more diverse activities and proactively encourage involvement in CSR for example.
