Job Details

Join a prestigious law firm that has set themselves apart from the competition; this is well demonstrated by the innovative, cutting-edge, and forward-thinking way in which they deliver legal services. They were an extremely early adopter of technology and have used AI to streamline their processes. They continue to achieve year on year organic growth. They continue to receive an abundance of industry and employer awards every year.

The Firm

The firm are leaders in the Legal 500 across an abundance of specialisms. They have been repeatedly recognised for their commercial awareness, innovation, and sector knowledge. The firm have a number of partners whom are homegrown and have established stellar individual reputations that give them and the firm real gravitas.

The firm has made significant investment throughout 2020, with the Leeds office being a key area of focus for the firm. This is evidenced by the investment they have made into the latest technology, continuously improving the office space, and the number of strategic heavyweight hires made in the last 12 months alone. They have a strong appetite for growth, and 2021 will be no different.

Investment in technology has always been an important part of who the firm is. They are constantly looking to remain ahead of the curve, provide a seamless client experience, and take away the monotonous administrative duties that will free up time to focus on what you do best; deliver top quality client service, build relationships, and generate revenue.

The client base reflects the firm's calibre, reputation, and expert knowledge. You will be representing international clients, household FTSE 250 names, and public sector bodies, making for a challenging, yet interesting and rewarding caseload.

What truly sets this firm apart is their culture. You may expect a firm of this size to have a stuffy, corporate environment, but that couldn't be further from reality. You will find a close-knit, collaborative team that will welcome you with open arms from day one, and an active social calendar that will allow you to integrate and build strong relationships with the wider team. This makes for an enjoyable and stimulating work environment, allowing the firm to enjoy an unrivalled employee retention rate. You will also find that the firm nurtures and develops legal talent; the growing number of home-grown partners well demonstrates this.

The Role

The firm is looking for a commercially astute, entrepreneurial Commercial Litigation Associate to join their highly regarded Commercial Litigation team, in their Leeds office.

You will join an award-winning Commercial Litigation team led by a team of heavy-hitting Partners who are seen as leaders in their field, regularly recommended by clients for their reputation and exceptional level of expertise.

You will work side by side with some of the most technically strong Partners and Lawyers in the UK on complex, multi-jurisdictional disputes. The work is diverse and varied, and you will find yourself acting on behalf of some of the largest corporations in the world across energy, banking, construction, technology, and defence.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a top tier Commercial Litigation team in the heart of Leeds. You will receive a highly competitive remuneration package, whilst being given the tools and exposure to develop your technical ability and progress your career.


  • You will be a Commercial Litigation Solicitor with a minimum of four years PQE (there is no upper limit in regards to the amount of experience)
  • You will have first-class communication skills
  • Be a commercially astute individual, with a flair for business development
  • Able to work closely with colleagues within your team, and the wider department


  • Salary is competitive and negotiable depending on your level of experience, on offer is an excellent benefits package and bonus scheme

This is a standout opportunity for a Commercial Litigation Associate to join an award-winning law firm in Leeds.
