The role will be very challenging and demanding but will offer you the opportunity to move away from chargeable hours and offer direct commercial and legal advice to the client.

Due to the nature of the dispute and the time that needs to be spent on it, this would not be suitable for a part-time candidate. However, there will be flexibility around home working etc.
This is a rare opportunity to move into an in-house to act on litigation matters.
