Our client, a highly regarded Legal 500 firm based in South Manchester, is offering a senior associate-level solicitor with at least eight years’ PQE a stellar opportunity to join them as a Commercial Litigation Partner with a fantastic salary, prospects and benefits package.  

Imagine starting 2023 with a bang and reaching partnership-level, securing a successful and prosperous future with this supportive firm.  

This role would also suit an existing commercial litigation partner looking to work more flexibly while improving their prospects, as the role brings an unblocked career path and the potential for equity opportunities further down the line.  

The firm also offers its team great flexibility, with the ability to work from home for up to three days per week. You can also work your hours to suit you – for example, to start and end your day in order to avoid rush hour on the roads or public transport, or to take a couple of hours in the afternoon to go to the gym or do the school run and log back on later.  

The firm provides an innovative points-based benefits package, so you can tailor your benefits to suit you! Choose from a range of useful benefits, such as free parking, a car washing service, a dry-cleaning service, free gym membership, Perk Box, additional days holiday, and many more. The firm has developed this excellent system because it recognises that everyone is unique and therefore values different things.  

The firm has also recently opened a brand-new office in Manchester City Centre, which the successful candidate is welcome to use on an ad hoc basis and for client meetings.  

This is an excellent opportunity for an experienced commercial litigation lawyer looking to take the next step in their career and start 2023 having secured a promotion to Partner.   

You’ll be advising an established and varied client base made up largely of owner-managed businesses and entrepreneurs. The spread of clients is diverse, and the firm has worked hard to generate a strong pipeline and secure caseload for years to come.

The ideal candidate will either have a small following of clients or referrers and a willingness to support their colleagues in developing business, as well as enthusiasm for the opportunity to grow a team around them. The firm has a down-to-earth approach and are looking for someone technically strong that can also deliver advice to clients in a straight-forward, no-nonsense manner. 

Nine out of ten team members would recommend working at the firm to a friend, so get in touch today to take advantage of this opportunity to get promoted, increase your pay and prospects, and work with interesting clients.
