Are you looking for a firm where you will have a voice and real influence over key decisions that are made? Have you hit a glass ceiling in your current role and are keen to obtain equity in the future? If you are a Senior Associate who is ready to take the next step in your career, or a Partner that is looking to get away from the politics of a bigger firm and make your mark on an exciting, upcoming boutique law firm, then read on.
This is a specialist boutique litigation firm in Manchester City Centre, widely recognised as leaders across Banking & Finance, Construction, Media, and Technology Litigation. They are going from strength to strength and have built their reputation on providing high-quality legal services to a broad range of established clients. This has seen them ranked by the Legal 500 across a range of contentious areas.
The firm revolutionised how they work and implemented technology and AI in its early stages, allowing them to get ahead of the curve and ensure its lawyers were equipped to compete and succeed in a competitive market. This forward-thinking and cutting-edge approach, along with their high level of specialist knowledge has seen them trusted by the likes of household FTSE 250 names, multi-national corporations and HNWI individuals, who have partnered with the firm for decades. You will find that the firm often competes with the big players in the City on high profile and high-value matters, making for an exciting and dynamic flow of work.
You will find that the firm prioritises client service and success over unrealistic billable hour targets which has ensured that not only do they have an impressive roster of loyal clients, but their staff turnover is second to none. Over 80% of their current team have been with the firm for 10 years.
The firm operates a genuinely collaborative environment where each individual is aligned to its goals and ambitions, making for a high performing and collegiate working environment. They are a highly profitable practice and have continued to grow year on year, despite the effects of coronavirus, and this continued growth is where you come in.
The firm is now looking to bolster its renowned Commercial Litigation team with a commercially astute, entrepreneurial Partner.
As a Partner in the firm, you will be given full autonomy and responsibility for driving the Commercial Litigation team's growth, both in terms of headcount and turnover, as the firm looks to build on highly successful periods of record profits. You will join a heavy-hitting cohort of Partners and have a seat at the table from day one, having real influence over critical decisions that will affect direction, growth and culture.
Working alongside the team's respected Partner, you will have direct responsibility for three talented Associates, as part of a wider team of seven. You will oversee their development and progression, whilst identifying areas of growth for the firm and managing the recruitment of Associates into the Commercial Litigation team, in line with their future growth plans.
The Commercial Litigation team handles complex, multi-jurisdictional disputes, including shareholder disputes, commercial fraud, contract disputes, and banking & finance disputes. The firm's key sector focuses are financial services, pharmaceutical, transport, and technology. However, they are continually looking for areas to grow into, and your existing practice doesn't need to fit into these sectors.
This is an exciting opportunity to become a crucial member of the firm, offering a highly lucrative remuneration package, and a realistic prospect of obtaining equity in the near future.
* You will be a Commercial Litigation Solicitor with a minimum of 8 years PQE (there is no upper limit in regards to the amount of experience)
* You will either already be a Partner or an ambitious Senior Associate, and will have experience leading a successful team and undertaking high-quality work
* You will have first-class communication skills
* Be a commercially astute individual, with a flair for business development
* A transferable client base or existing contacts is highly advantageous
This is a remarkable opportunity for a Commercial Litigation Partner to join a dynamic, cutting edge boutique litigation specialist in Manchester City Centre.
