DEFENDANT LITIGATED WORK
The work can involve advising on anything from fast track to multi track cases and the variety of different matters is certainly one of the main attractions of the opportunity, not least because solicitors are able to develop skills across a number of different sectors.
A solid grasp of the litigation process is therefore essential. Furthermore, the team also undertakes cross border work especially in relation to their clients who operate in the leisure sector. An experience of cross border work, therefore, would be beneficial but not crucial.

The department is looking to attract strong litigators, but also lawyers who can think on their feet and who feel comfortable advising on a variety of work. Excellent service levels are a must as the successful candidate will be expected to develop good working relationships enabling the best client experience.

This is a growing team within the Manchester insurance practice group, offering the chance for talented individuals to progress and develop. All in all, this is an exciting role designed to attract a solicitor who is looking for a real challenge with access to a fantastic variety of quality work.
