Are you a Litigation Lawyer and want to work with a progressive and growing law firm? Our client is recruiting experienced Litigation Lawyers to join their busy litigation team. The positions will be tailored to suit you and can be:

  • Either full or part-tme
  • Based at any of the clients offices in Salisbury, Fordingbridge or Andover.
  • Flexible working from home is also available

You will have :

  • Solid experience of civil and commercial litigation work and an ability to run these cases unsupervised
  • A desire to help in the growth of the litigation department
  • Great people skills and will be an enthusiastic team player
  • Good organisational. time management and IT skills
  • High standards of customer care
  • A history of strong billing

The job is suitable for a Solicitor, Legal Executive, or a highly experienced Paralegal with genuine ability and proven experience. Proven ability in training junior staff would be a bonus, although it's not essential.

So, if you are a confident, well-presented, friendly and approachable Litigation Lawyer with excellent communication skills, we want to hear from you.

Your salary will be determined by your experience and billing prospects. This will be discussed more fully during interview. It is likely that your starting salary will be in the range £40,000 to £60,000, plus benefits and pension.

The job

You will be joining a team of 3 litigation lawyers dealing with a variety of commercial and civil litigation. It does not involve dealing with personal injury and medical negligence work (2 other experienced solicitors deal with that work exclusively).

The job will broadly replace the existing caseload of 2 lawyers - with the current caseload split broadly as follows:

    • Lawyer A - Professional negligence claims, partnership disputes and company disputes - 70% and other commercial and civil litigation - 30%
    • Lawyer B - A mix of employment law, including settlement agreements, inheritance claims, boundary disputes and other general civil litigation.

The mix of both work and experience can be changed so the roles can be built around the successful candidates.


The jobs are currently based in Salisbury office but can alternatively be located in either Amesbury or Fordingbridge branch offices.

Full or Part Time?

Ideally, both jobs are full-time. The team is far from short of enquiries and new work. However we are happy to consider part-time working for the right candidate.

Head of the Litigation Team

Depending on the candidate, a position as head of the litigation team is available as part of this role.

Developing additional niche work

The client is keen to develop further niche areas where genuinely specialist areas of law can be developed to completely outshine the opposition regionally and even nationwide.

If you have a niche area of law you have developed or would like to develop in addition to the existing workload, we would love to talk to you about it.

Flexible working

Flexible working is offered - many of the lawyers routinely work from home.

Applications are welcomed from Solicitors, Legal Executives and very experienced Paralegals.

Prompt applications are recommended as the Client is keen to fill this position.

Apply now in confidence to learn full details about this role or alternatively call Nigel Danton direct for a confidential and informal discussion.
