Our two-partner commercial dispute resolution team boasts some enviable blue chip clients and a caseload which includes complex domestic and cross-border disputes. They are currently looking to recruit an experienced solicitor/associate level litigator to support them. As part of the team you’ll build your experience working collaboratively on some challenging disputes while also running your own caseload of more straightforward cases.
The role offers a significant level of variety and interest. You will work across a range of sectors and work-types, which may include commercial contract disputes, construction, professional indemnity, insolvency disputes, fraud, IP and international arbitration. Clients will span many sectors, including automotive, financial services, leisure, fisheries, logistics and FMCG.
You’ll need to be resourceful, responsive and resilient, with the ability to grasp new challenges and areas of law quickly and accurately. You’ll benefit from support and career development from highly regarded and experienced partners and our senior associate and access to cases of a quality hard to find elsewhere in Reading. As you’ll be expected to work with limited supervision on your own cases, we expect you will already have accumulated at least 3 years’ pqe in commercial litigation before joining us. We’ll expect you to have an interest and, ideally a successful track record, in marketing and practice development. We like to provide tailored and pragmatic solutions for our clients so being able to demonstrate a high level of client care is essential.
If the variety and challenge of this role appeals to you, we’d like to hear from you. Please apply with detailed CV and a covering letter explaining what you can bring to the role.Apply for this role
We have fantastic people at Field Seymour Parkes, from our receptionists to our partners, and we know that every single one of them is key to our success.
We have a track record in developing people and their careers, with success being rewarded regardless of length of service or background. There are opportunities for all and we encourage engagement, participation and responsibility at all levels.
In the same way that we build lasting relationships to support our clients through their personal and business lives, we aim to do the same for our employees. Our recently refurbished offices in the heart of Reading are a great place to work, but we also understand that our people have lives outside of their job and offer enhanced family-friendly benefits.
If you are enthusiastic, pragmatic and want to join our friendly team to achieve your full potential, and help others achieve theirs, we would love to hear from you.
