- We are working with a MIdlands in-house legal function
- Looking to recruit a Litigation Solicitor into their team
About Our Client
The in-house team of a leading brand.
You will be joining an existing in-house team working closely alongside the Head of Legal on disputed matters within the business. The range of disputes will be very broad and you will be dealing with a mixture of clients and customers. The disputes could range from professional negligence through to defects issues. You would not be working on any debt recovery matters.
The role would also give the opportunity to hone your skills in relation to building relationships with external lawyers and Counsel for larger and more complicated disputes. At present, the team would outsource this work. As your role and experience developed in the business, there is no reason why some of these disputes could not then be run by you in the future.
This role would suit either a practice lawyer or existing in-house litigator who wants to work in-house and as part of a business.
The legal team is long established so there is job security and opportunities to develop.
The team has an excellent culture and work flexibly - so it is likely that you would be in the office 3 days per week and working 2 days from home.
The Successful Applicant
It's likely that you will have at least 12 months' experience in litigation - either during a training contract or as a qualified solicitor. Our client will look at candidates with a range of PQE.
What's on Offer
Competitive benefits, flexible working and the opportunity to work in-house.
