Commercial Dispute Resolution Solicitor

Apply now

Our client, a top 25 national law firm, is looking for a commercial litigation solicitor with up to five years’ experience to join their Legal 500 team in Manchester.  

You will be dealing with a range of commercial disputes, including high-value dispute resolution cases.  

We think this client is a bit of a gem – because it has all the perks of a national, with the heart of a regional.  

It has modern, high-spec offices, but has also fully embraced hybrid working, offering four days homeworking per week.   

Here, you’ll be given achievable targets and the opportunity to work with some of the most well-respected and successful brands in the world, including British Airways and LEGO.   

Its commitment to people over profits is demonstrated by the fact that team members stay for an average of six years – which is well above the industry average. If you needed more evidence, look to its roster of accreditations, including Stonewall, Disability Confident and Halo Hair Code.   

Junior level team members are encouraged to work on complex and exciting cases and learn directly from partners; and, unlike many national firms, offices cross-collaborate on matters, so you won’t find any infighting or politics here – just fair and equal opportunities to develop your caseload and progress.  

You’ll join a real team here, where everyone has your back. The firm encourages a close-knit culture through its peer-to-peer appreciation schemes, such as colleague-nominated cash rewards and gifts of up to £1000. You’ll also get the opportunity to take two full paid volunteering days to support causes close to your heart and give back to the community.  

You needn’t have city centre or national firm experience on your CV – our client is much more concerned with your skills and potential than where you’ve worked previously. It also encourages applications from those who have taken less traditional routes into law and come from a variety of backgrounds.
