Litigation Team Leader 4+ PQE – Top pay and bonuses – Fast-track progression – Unique opportunity

Apply now

Our client, a US export and exciting new entrant to the UK legal market, is looking for a Litigation Team Leader to join its team at its new Manchester city centre offices.

The firm is a highly successful leader in the specialised US legal mass-tort litigation market, including data breach claims, diesel emissions and financial mis-selling. The work is high profile and heavy duty, often involving hundreds or thousands of claimants.

The firm currently has a team of 10 litigators in Manchester and is looking to expand quickly, so there will be plenty of opportunities to progress up the ladder. This is a fantastic time to get into the firm early and quickly progress to senior management in a few years.

The right candidate will be a qualified solicitor with 4+ PQE and solid experience in commercial and/or consumer disputes or dealing with group actions.

In the role, you’ll combine fee-earning with team management, both in the UK and overseas – so this opportunity would suit someone that wanted to broaden their leadership skills while taking a bit of a step back from file work.

This would be a fantastic opportunity for someone who has several years of litigation experience under their belt and is thinking, “Now what?”
