Eight years ago the property litigation team consisted of 1 partner and 1 NQ. It now comprises 2 partners, 1 senior associate, 4 associates, a dedicated trainee and two secretaries. Growth of work means we need to expand the team further. Hence this vacancy. We are looking for a property litigator who has either qualified in the past year or who will quality in September 2020 to join us.
We believe we have a lot to offer you: we are a busy team with a large amount of interesting work and therefore you will quickly find yourself given large amounts of responsibility, but within a close-knit supportive environment with partner input whenever you need it.
You will have a very varied workload. You will quickly be running your own cases and also working alongside the partners on larger more complex cases. Part of the role also includes advising our real estate transactional colleagues. Because the team sits within one of the general Commercial Litigation groups, there will also be some scope, if you wish, to obtain experience on more general commercial disputes to complement your skills as a property litigator.
Both property litigation partners are solicitor advocates. The appointee will have the opportunity to develop his/her advocacy skills should he/she want to.
Please note our advertisements use PQE/salary levels purely as a guide. However we are happy to consider applications from all candidates who are able to demonstrate the skills necessary to fulfil the role.
