Our litigation department deals with a broad range of civil litigation work, acting primarily for private individuals but commercial clients too. The work ranges from private property, landlord and tenant disputes, to commercial claims, contentious trusts and probate, contract disputes, personal injury and clinical negligence. We are a closely-knit team comprising one Partner, one Senior Associate, a Litigation Executive and three secretaries.
We currently have a full-time vacancy for an ambitious and energetic solicitor to join this friendly, hard-working, dynamic team.
The successful candidate must be able to work independently, without day-to-day supervision, but there will be regular reviews, and the opportunity to seek advice from more senior colleagues.
The role will include developing your own caseload, whilst assisting on larger, more complex cases conducted by the Senior Associate or the Partner in the team.
A guideline for experience is PQE 3 to 5 years, or equivalent, in terms of the candidate’s skills and abilities.
You must have the following experience:
- Dealing with employment work to include both employers and employees, settlement agreements, tribunal claims, County Court claims, non-contentious work, and TUPE.
In addition, knowledge and evidence of having worked in the following areas would also be useful:
- Contentious probate;
- Landlord and tenant;
- Property disputes; and
- Commercial disputes.
A proven track record in developing an area of work would be useful, together with a willingness to be involved in the firm’s marketing and business development plan. Local knowledge is also important, as many of our clients come from the local community, and choose us because we offer a personalised bespoke service.
A full Driving Licence is essential as you will be expected to see clients at any or all of our offices, attend mediations, site visits, court, and conferences with Counsel.
The successful candidate will have a robust attitude, the ability to think strategically, with good attention to detail, strong interpersonal skills, be willing to take the initiative, and drive ideas forward.
