Commercial Litigation Lawyer
Level of role Associate (0 - 2 PQE)
We are the only Commercial Litigation team in Leeds to be Tier 1 ranked in both Chambers and the Legal 500 directories and have both Partners (Simon Kamstra and Bill Gilliam) ranked as Leading Individuals. We stand out for being consistently excellent in advice: we not only provide technical excellence and experience but, crucially, we also demonstrate real insight into our clients and what really matters to them. Our knowledge of our chosen sectors and markets, and our investment in our client relationships, set us apart. We are a natural choice for FTSE100 and other "bold and beautiful" clients. We are a natural choice for talent - a firm where people fulfil their potential in an environment where they are developed and valued. We do fantastic work: exciting, challenging, fulfilling work that adds significant value to our clients, our people and our business. We are also known for our uncompromising quality. Everything we do - large and small, with our colleagues and our clients - stands up alongside the best. We are recognised for our extraordinary teamwork - within the firm and with our clients - that creates a consistently positive experience for our clients, people and communities
The Litigation Group recognises that an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the transactions underpinning the disputes we deal with is essential to the sensible resolution of those disputes. The Group represents a large number of blue chip companies, public sector authorities/departments and high net worth individuals across a huge range of sectors - retail, transport, digital, food and drink, health, industrial, automotive, energy, utilities, financial services etc. Often working very closely with our non-contentious colleagues, our expertise and experience of the way our clients operate gives us a significant advantage over our opponents, who are often the magic circle/major city firms. We have a genuine mastery of the issues which are important, including fast delivery of commercial solutions to complex and critical issues, with the ability to utilise a combination of formal proceedings (including court and arbitral proceedings) and all aspect of alternative dispute resolution (including negotiation, mediation and adjudication).
We are looking to recruit an associate for the Leeds Litigation team who has experience working on commercial litigation matters. It is essential that you have the core skills, quality and versatility to work on any type of commercial litigation and arbitration.
