Commercial Litigation Solicitor – Top pay – Progression opportunity – No individual targets

Apply now

A multi-service, Legal 500 law firm based in Hale, South Manchester, is looking for a Commercial Litigation Solicitor with at least five years’ experience to join their award-winning team.

This is the perfect opportunity if you’re looking to handle a broad mix of high-calibre work and avoid the daily commute into the city centre. Due to its location in a very affluent part of Manchester, your cases will be high-value, complex and often high-profile – the exact trifecta needed to get your name in the Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners tables.

You’ll have a clear pathway to the top, as you’ll be working as a number two to the head of the department.

For legal professionals specialising in litigation, this South Manchester firm is a fantastic place to begin or continue a career, as it truly specialises in this field. The firm is known for the dynamism and forward-thinking approach of its partners, as well as its reputation for exceptional client care.

You’ll be working on a variety of high value disputes for a regional and national client base, including shareholder disputes, contract disputes and professional negligence, plus a growing caseload of sports-related disputes.

Offering a credible alternative to city centre law firm culture, its principal-led approach recognises the uniqueness of each and every team member. That’s why, in addition to taking home a great salary, you will be able to take advantage of a free massage every month, subscriptions to Netflix, Spotify, Amazon Prime and Apple, membership to Pure Gym, your birthday off work, a counselling service, free pet insurance, free conveyancing, and a healthcare package which provides 24/7 access to a GP and money towards dental, optical and physio.

Commutable from Manchester, Hale, Altrincham, Wilmslow, Macclesfield, Congleton, Stockport and surrounding areas, speak to us about joining this truly modern firm today.
