Our client is a global firm with an outstanding reputation in litigation. They are looking now for a litigation solicitor to join the team, to work primarily on high level international disputes. You will work for major national and international clients and join a market leading litigation team.
This firm handles complex litigation work, operating on a global scale. Matters are high profile international disputes, and will push an ambitious litigation solicitor in terms of complexity and range. Due to expansion, they are now looking for an additional solicitor ideally at the 2-6 PQE level to join the team in Manchester. You will play a very hands on role and be exposed to a level of litigation and arbitration work not usual to the Manchester market. Although you will be part of a global team, the Manchester team is small allowing full exposure to all cases and a huge opportunity for career development.
The ideal candidate will be technically excellent and absolutely committed to progressing their career in litigation. Top academics including a 2:1 degree or higher is a must, given the complexity of the work. A background from either a major national or regional firm is also important. As well as confidence technically and a confidence dealing with demanding clients, the firm is looking for an individual with a commercial edge who will be a strong representative of the firm. This is a team where standards are high, but there is a clear gap for an ambitious candidate to progress their career quickly.
