Our client is a successful, growing combined Barrister and Solicitor legal practice providing a streamlined litigation service to businesses, individuals, employers and other legal professionals. Embracing new technologies and located outside London, they are able to provide a highly competitive service enabling wider access to justice for all of its clients.
They are specialists in commercial disputes, insolvency, regulatory/disciplinary and public inquiries. They also offer all forms of private and alternative dispute resolution such as arbitration, mediation, adjudication and early neutral evaluation.

Due to continued growth they are now seeking a Civil Litigation Solicitor to join their small, friendly team.
The role will, initially, be supporting a wide range of work to be done on existing cases. You will not be expected to bring any cases/clients with you.

The firms mission statement is to enjoy what we do, avoid stress, and create something of which we can all be proud. There are no targets, few rules, plenty of laughs, and a modest degree of democracy.
You will be a practising/recently practicing solicitor with circa 10 years’ experience in civil litigation gained from working in a good law firm. Barristers will also be considered if you have some experience of working in a firm. If you have higher rights of audience, that will be a bonus.
The role is ideal for a qualified solicitor who wants family-friendly working, enjoys working remotely as well as in the office from time to time, is computer/tech savvy and likes to work in a team.
The role is offered on a self-employed basis working circa 20 hours per week. The structure of compensation can be discussed further with interested candidates and a competitive hourly rate is on offer. The working pattern is open to discussion to suit the successful candidate and the hours can be delivered flexibly so long as cases are maintained and deadlines met.
