Lock and Marlborough is a highly regarded law firm in West London, and we are now seeking a talented Solicitor specialising in General/Commercial Litigation with a minimum of 2 plus years PQE, to join our growing team.
Strong experience in General/Commercial Litigation is a requirement and some experience in Employment, Landlord and Tenant or Insolvency would be an advantage but not essential.
There must be an interest and desire to develop skills in these areas and to expect a mix of contentious portfolio work.
Skills and Experience
The key competencies required are the ability to build and maintain relationships with clients, the ability to explain the law clearly and concisely, be able to understand complex legal arguments and subtle interpretation differences, to follow procedures and be highly organised especially regarding key dates. They should also demonstrate they are a team player, client focused and a good communicator with a strong practical approach to their workload. A commitment of delivering a quality service is essential, as is the ability to manage the demands of a substantial workload. A fundamental aspect of the role is to be proactive with business development with regards to both existing and prospective clients.
The successful candidate will have an excellent academic record as well as the motivation to exceed expectations. It is preferable, but by no means essential, that the successful candidate have a good command of conversational French, or another language.
This is a fantastic opportunity for an ambitious, dynamic and confident solicitor who has a desire to forge their career with a long-established firm, which has been in practice since 1986.
Applications should be sent with a covering letter and CV to the Office Manager – Wendy Bedwell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
