WHO WE ARE?

PURE Business Group was created to provide a unique, innovative and collaborative solution, to the Civil Litigation legal sector. Founded in early 2015 by Phil Hodgkinson and bringing thirty years’ experience within the insurance and legal sector, the group now employs in excess of 450 staff in four UK locations and continues to grow year on year.

PURE Advocacy & Litigation Limited is a dedicated and streamlined advocacy and litigation service, operating as a modern alternative to the external Bar and traditional barristers chambers. Our team consists of people from an array of different professional backgrounds consisting of: barristers, solicitors, CILEx practitioners, advocates and legal draftsman and is designed to provide our clients with an affordable solution, no matter the task that is required to be undertaken.

JOB PURPOSE

Pure Advocacy & Litigation Limited is seeking experienced barristers and lawyers who are specialist in advocacy, advisory and drafting services, to handle instructions in complex civil litigation; primarily in the fields of financial mis-selling, consumer credit, construction, data protection and privacy, and landlord and tenant.

However, there is vast opportunity for a varied and technically challenging workload, and with the addition of working directly with external clients the opportunities are endless.
