We are working with a market-leading international law firm to recruit a Commercial Litigation Solicitor with 5-6 PQE to join its Tier 1 Legal 500 team in Manchester as an Associate.

Due to its unrivalled reputation in the litigation field, the team is growing very quickly and enjoys an enviable caseload of the highest value, most complex dispute work. The team aims to become the go-to litigation outfit in Manchester and is very close to achieving its goal.

In addition to top-of-market pay, you’ll be able to increase your salary by a further 20% through the firm’s market-leading bonus scheme based on low billable hours targets, plus an extensive benefits package that includes private medical and enhanced parental leave.

Day-to-day, you’ll deal with a wide variety of international and national disputes, including general commercial dispute resolution, contractual and negligence disputes, reputation management, defamation and data protection issues.
