You can expect to receive a highly competitive remuneration package, with a market-leading bonus structure, and the prospect of obtaining equity in the near future.

The Firm:

This is a highly regarded regional heavyweight with eight offices across the North West. They have developed an outstanding reputation for their level of client service, which has seen them repeatedly ranked in the Legal 500 across a number of practice areas. This reputation ensures a steady stream of high-quality work which is the envy of its competitors in the region.

You will find a quality of work unheard of at a firm of this size, ranging from HNW individuals to national corporations including a host of household names. Their main areas for individuals are Property, Family, and Private Client, and on the business side, they have renowned specialist teams across Corporate, Litigation, and Employment. Within all of the areas above, they have received countless regional and national industry awards, demonstrating the firm's success and the level of technical ability that they possess.

You can expect to be surrounded by lawyers who are innovative, entrepreneurial, and well-known for their specialist knowledge. This mix of talented individuals has bred a truly successful environment, with the firm posting year on year growth for the past five years. 2020 saw record turnover and profit, despite coronavirus.

The Role:

The firm is now looking for a Commercial Litigation Partner to join its highly regarded Dispute Resolution department.

You will work alongside a close-knit, astute Partnership team and play a pivotal role in driving the firm forward as they continue the explosive growth they are experiencing.

The Commercial Litigation team sits as part of the wider Dispute Resolution department, which is an exciting and growing part of the firm's practice.

The quality of work is exceptionally high, and you will find yourself working on a range of high-value disputes on behalf of a diverse client base. The Commercial Litigation team cover everything from shareholder disputes, commercial fraud, contract disputes, and banking & finance disputes. This variety makes for a challenging and stimulating role, and due to the demand for the firm's services, you will have an interesting caseload to pick up from day one.

Given the firm's penchant for promoting lawyers to Partnership internally, it is very rare for a role at this level to become available. It is an exciting time to join as they embark on a journey to become one of the key national players and make waves in the market. You can expect to receive a highly competitive salary, a bonus on your billings, in addition to a bonus based on team performance, and on any work that you refer to other departments.
