About Our Client

A long-established Birmingham law firm - not based in the city centre but in close proximity and easy access by car / public transport.

Job Description

Are you passionate about Litigation but feel that you are not getting enough direct exposure to clients and cases?

Would you thrive as part of a smaller team that will give you plenty of responsibility but is also committed to your training and development?

This Birmingham based law firm are looking to bring an independent litigation solicitor on board - somebody who probably has 1 or 2 years' experience in litigation law and is feeling a bit frustrated at their current firm.

This firm has a real focus on litigation law and clients come to them because they are experts in their field. Whilst litigation is a distress purchase thus impacting on repeat work, the team have a great reputation within the legal market and the majority of work comes to them because of this reputation and referrals.

You'll be exposed to your own caseload from day one, so you'll need to know your way around the CPR. Equally, the firm is committed to training and development. The team is small so you'll work closely with the senior lawyers and Partners who operate a very much 'open door' policy - so if you need assistance and advice on a matter, then they'll be happy to help and get stuck in.

The team acts for a real mixed bag of clients from local SMEs through to individuals.

What type of litigation would you get involved with? Basically anything contentious. Like their clients, the work is a mixed bag. So you could be getting involved with commercial contracts disputes, professional negligence and even construction or insolvency litigation.

This would be a great move for a solicitor who wants to get more into developing their own relationships and clients.

The Successful Applicant

Your legal experience will heavily slanted towards litigation and you will be confident to be able to run with your own caseload.

As stated above, it's likely you have at least 1-2 years' experience in Litigation but there's no reason why this can't have been as part of a training contract if you have solid academics and the right attitude.
