Job Details

Commercial law firm in Leeds is looking to recruit a Data Protection/ Data Breach lawyer of 0 to 2 years’ PQE. The team undertakes a broad range of substantial, challenging work around the world, largely focusing on incident response, regulatory investigations and enforcement proceedings, and litigation. The team’s clients include insurers, private corporations and public sector organisations. This role is litigation based, managing data breach claims. The role will encompass: • assisting and supporting more senior colleagues with their caseloads • preparing advice and reports as required • managing your own caseload of data breach claims (with an appropriate level of partner supervision depending on your PQE) • working with the team to continue to develop and grow the teams’ cyber-focused products and services.

If you are already qualified, you will have experience of data breach claims or general litigation, as well as being flexible and committed to the demands of working in crisis situations. You will also be commercially astute and entrepreneurial, with strong interpersonal skills, strong attention to detail and good drafting skills. If you are newly-qualified, you will ideally have undertaken a seat in Data Protection law (either contentious or non-contentious) or at least have demonstrable interest in this area of law.


Farrar Levin Legal Recruitment specialises in the recruitment of qualified lawyers from NQ to Partner level. In addition to finding lawyers new opportunities in the England & Wales jurisdiction we also recruit lawyers into offshore jurisdictions such as the Channel Islands and Caribbean/ Bermuda.

At FLLR we seek to provide a bespoke recruitment service which suits the purposes and needs of each individual candidate. Our aim is to source/ generate opportunities appropriate to your specialist legal discipline or assist you in moving across to an alternative legal discipline which you have identified as preferable to your current specialist area.

If you are an organisation looking to recruit a lawyer (or lawyers), we can assist you by trying to source candidates for your recruitment needs. In addition to working on specific vacancies, we may (from time to time) send details of candidates who possess specialist legal skills/ knowledge relevant to you and therefore could be potentially of interest. In some cases, these candidates may even have the potential to add value to your current client portfolio by possessing a following (ie. client contacts who offer immediate fee-earning opportunities).
