Commercial Litigation Partner │ Progression opportunity for 8+ PQE │ Min. four days from home

Apply now

We have a fantastic opportunity for a dispute resolution / commercial litigation solicitor with at least eight years PQE to step up into a partner role.  

Due to the success of the team and the growing caseload available, this is a rare opportunity to come in as a lateral hire partner with no following required.  

What’s more, you’ll be able to work from home for at least four days a week, with the potential to extend this even further to a set number of days monthly. 

The role would suit those looking to progress faster than what is available to them at their current firm, and/or those looking for more flexibility.  

This full-service firm has deep roots in the North West, but has also opened offices in London. It has an extremely high employee retention rate – we’ve placed several professionals with this client over our years of working with them and they are still singing its praises!  

You’ll also get lots of admin and secretarial support, with an approximate 2:1 ratio. This firm’s savvy use of the latest tech has also revolutionised the way its teams work, leaving its lawyers with more time to do what they do best – advising clients.    

In addition, their marketing function is genuinely impressive and known for being one of the best in the sector. This takes massive pressure off fee earners to network and engage in business development alongside their chargeable work. There is plenty of work in the pipeline and there will be no expectation of you bringing a following or having to build up a caseload over time. It is all there waiting for you to get stuck into.  

It is consistently acknowledged in the Legal 500 across multiple practice areas every year, demonstrating its commitment to doing quality work.   

A consistent award-winner, this firm has recently been recognised at the Modern Law Awards and Manchester Legal Awards. Its lawyers are also regularly featured in national media, including the Daily Express, The Independent and on LBC. So, if you are looking to build a profile, the firm will help you with this.  

This firm also has one of the strongest social value footprints of any we’ve worked with. They are proud of their commitment to doing good in the community, and you’ll feel proud to work here in turn.
