Everys has been providing high quality legal advice to families and businesses across the region for many years. Offering a full range of legal services delivered professionally yet personally, we place great value in the ongoing relationships we have with our clients. We always provide a welcoming and helpful service, with clear communication at the heart of everything we do.

We believe in developing and maintaining strong links with the communities in which we work and live and are strong supporters of a wide range of sporting and charitable organisations across Devon and Somerset.

Our Litigation Department deals with a broad range of civil litigation work and currently comprises one Partner, one Senior Associate and a Paralegal supported by a team of three secretaries.

We currently have a full-time vacancy for an ambitious and energetic Litigation Solicitor to join our friendly, hard working, dynamic department.

The successful candidate must be able to work independently to such a degree that you do not need day-to-day support, although regular supervision will be provided.

The role will include running your own caseload of fast track and other medium level cases up with a value of up to approximately £50,000 or equivalent.

A guideline for experience is PQE 3 to 5 years although any qualified Solicitor or Legal Executive with in excess of 2 years PQE will be considered.

You must have experience of three or more of the areas below:

  • Employment law to include advising on Settlement Agreements, tribunal proceedings and employment claims in the County Court
  • Personal injury, including RTA claims, EL and Claims.
  • Contract disputes
  • Commercial disputes
  • Insolvency
  • Residential Landlord and Tenant

Knowledge of the areas below would be useful, but is not essential:

  • Property Disputes
  • Contentious Probate

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 required as you will need to be able to work from different locations as the business need requires and to meet with clients and their other professional advisors at any of our offices or their premises.

To be successful in this role you will need to have a robust attitude, ability to think strategically, attention to detail, good interpersonal skills and willing to take the initiative and put forward ideas and make suggestions.

This post will provide excellent career prospects in due course for the right person.

This is an exciting opportunity to become an integral member of our Litigation Department and to thrive in a professional and friendly atmosphere offering a competitive salary. If you are looking for a new challenge please send your CV to jo.garrod@everys.co.uk
