Exceptional opportunity for a high calibre commercial disputes lawyer looking to handle only the very best quality work!
My client is a thriving and rapidly expanding international practice which has an excellent reputation in the market for handling top quality commercial litigation matters, with the value of the disputes involved often running into the hundreds of millions of pounds. The firm is now seeking to expand its Birmingham office through the hire of a senior/principal/managing associate level (or above) dispute resolution lawyer to join its team,
The firm is particularly interested in candidates who have worked at top tier firms where high quality work is the norm, and who are now looking for something a little different and genuinely exciting from their next role. There are various arms to the firm’s litigation practice and thus applicants with experience in areas such as data leak litigation, fraud, financial disputes and equal pay disputes will all be of real interest. Applicants who have dealt with disputes relating to sports will also be considered, albeit this is currently a smaller aspect of the firm’s work at this time.
The firm also looks for self-starting and commercially-minded candidates who can both see the overall picture and can identify the best course of action to resolve the dispute for their client, as opposed to those simply content to let the hours clock up unnecessarily. Ideally the PQE banding is likely to be in the region of 8-15yr PQE, although applicants at all levels of qualification will be considered if they can display experience of dealing with litigious matters of the nature outlined above within a leading practice.
The remuneration package is excellent and will attract those looking to move out of the top-tier firms within the Birmingham market, although it is the quality of work which is on offer which should be the real draw for any ambitious lawyers looking to make a move.
