The firm


Listed in The Legal 500 and Chambers Directory, the firm has a turnover of c£47m and around 550 staff - including 400 fee earners - across 5 offices nationally. They act for a wide range of long standing clients in both the public and private sector, including all forms of NHS organisations, governmental and regulatory bodies, registered providers, insurers, police, fire and rescue services, independent health and social care providers, charities and GP practices.

The role


The Litigation team is seeking a solicitor/senior solicitor with 2-5 years' PQE in the London office on either a full time or part time basis. The role will involve helping with a wide range of commercial dispute resolution cases including contractual claims, procurement challenges, competition, contentious intellectual property, debt recovery, fraud recovery, reputation management and defamation. Previous experience of commercial litigation and/or corporate/commercial projects is essential for this role.

This client is looking for someone who has excellent drafting skills, willingness to create and maintain templates and precedents, enjoys variety in their work, feels confident in managing external counsel and experts, will take early responsibility for handling the challenges of litigation/mediation/adjudication/arbitration/expert determinations, will work hard to meet financial targets and support business development activities including CSR, and who is happy to work independently and co-operatively. The successful candidate will be positive and flexible, able to prioritise work to meet deadlines, relish attention to detail, want to be part of a highly motivated and successful team, professional and approachable.

There are good opportunities for advancement within the group, including the opportunity to get involved in business development, and the role does not require any previous experience of the healthcare industry. With spacious offices in South West London staff can also avoid commuting and yet still be close to central London.
