Due to continued expansion we are looking to recruit Solicitors to the team which currently comprises of four lawyers ranging from Trainee Solicitor to Equity Partner.
You will initially be based at our Chippenham office before moving across to the new offices early next year.
Our Dispute Resolution and Litigation team forms part of our multi-faceted Commercial department who offer high quality legal services to businesses and individuals throughout Wiltshire and beyond. The Commercial department currently comprises of 12 lawyers, including a Professional Support Lawyer, and seven support staff across our six offices.
Due to its success the Dispute Resolution and Litigation team, along with the wider Commercial department, will be moving to new fit for purpose office premises on the outskirts of Chippenham within the year so that it can continue to grow and develop.
This is your chance to be part of an ambitious, thriving and successful team that prides itself on the balanced and realistic advice it provides for its clients and strong reputation it has gained as a result.
You will be required to develop the litigation work, client base and network of referrers and contacts as well as service the Firm's existing established client base.
As part of the role you will assist with marketing the Firm in general with your focus being on the team and the wider Commercial department in particular.
The team quite often houses one, if not two, Trainee Solicitors and part of this role will be to support their development.
Life at Goughs
We fully understand that work is a big part of our lives and we strive towards making the working day an enjoyable environment.
We actively bring together the offices and departments as much as possible through our social and charity committees. We have an annual away day which is all about team building, unwinding and having fun!
We are committed to helping our employees strive for a healthy work life balance and we are open to discussing flexible working arrangements.
We believe in investing in our staff and offer a tailored career structure and appraisal scheme to our lawyers and central services staff. The success of this is evident with many of our Partners and Equity Partners having started with us as trainees or junior lawyers.
It is essential that you have strong previous experience in Civil and Commercial Litigation and a basic knowledge of Insolvency Law, Planning Law and Professional Negligence is desirable but not essential.
We are looking for an individual who has a professional approach with good client handling and care skills. Excellent communication and interpersonal skills are a must have.
