Litigation Partner

Apply now
  • Significant scope for progression – take a supported step up to Head of Department when you’re ready 
  • HNW work – grow your career prospects 
  • Hybrid working  
  • Legal 500 team 

A highly regarded Legal 500 firm in Greater Manchester is recruiting for a Dispute Resolution Solicitor to join as a Partner and take a supported step up to lead the team when they feel the time is right. 
Very rarely for such an opportunity, you do not need to bring a following with you, as the firm is looking for a succession plan for its already very successful team. You may already be a Partner or be a Senior Associate/Legal Director looking for a step up with further career prospects in the short-term.  

You’ll play a pivotal role in taking this team of seven forward into its next phase of growth. The outgoing head of team will be sticking around to help you as you progress, providing ongoing coaching and advice.  

The firm has embraced hybrid working and you’ll be able to work from home for two days per week. 

Additional benefits include healthcare, generous annual leave provisions and plenty of secretarial and administrative support within the team to help you do your best work each day. 

The team deal with a mix of dispute resolution work, including commercial litigation, property litigation, contentious insolvency and contentious probate. You may be a specialist in one or more of these areas, or a general practitioner. 

This really is the perfect opportunity for someone looking for a leadership role in a Legal 500 firm but wants some support in getting started.
