Solicitor - Banking & Finance

Bristol, UK - Top 100 Law Firm - Competitive Salary

Yolk Recruitment are working with one of the UK's fastest growing law firms. Sitting comfortably inside the UK's Top 100 Law Firms, this firm has grown from a high-street practice to being a significant player with seven offices across the South West and ambitious plans to expand to a nationwide based firm.

Our client's ethos of helping their clients to achieve its aspirations whilst also championing their own staff's success has contributed to the firm's continued growth. Collaboration is key and with a strong emphasis on business development and integrated thinking guiding the way our client delivers its services, this is an exciting proposition for an ambitious individual to thrive.

You will have the opportunity to shape your own career with an emphasis on personal wellbeing. Support and professional development is offered through the various Academy programmes designed to maximise our client's staff potential. Flexible working forms part of the norm here with packages tailored to suit the individual's needs.

This firm has recently recruited several senior lawyers from rival firms and is building a formidable reputation which will be desirable for a number of prospective candidates.

This is what you'll be doing

You will be working for high calibre clients in a supportive and dynamic team who encourage success and will help develop your own specialised knowledge.

You will be expected to work collaboratively across the regional offices. The work will be a broad range of commercial litigation instructions from a varied client base ranging from financial institutions to multinational organisations, SMEs and locally owned businesses. You will advise on disputes both domestic and international.

The team is led by a Partner with a breadth of experience whose insight is pivotal to the team's existing success. There will be an expectation to deliver the highest level of service that only few firms can guarantee.

This is what you'll bring to the Team

You will be a specialist in the commercial litigation space and will need to have a strong banking litigation background as most of the work will consist of working with large lenders and high street banks.

Our clients are eager to hear from candidates with minimum two years PQE, experience in commercial litigation matters and capable of managing your own case load.

You will have an enthusiasm for business development eager to network and build your own local presence.

Ideally you will have financial ombudsman experience but this is not essential. Any relevant experience in Banking & Finance, Energy & Infrastructure or Retail & Consumer will be viewed favourably.

This is what you'll get in return

The role is flexible, including office location. There are opportunities for home-based working, key to striking the right work/life balance.

There are significant benefits in return, most notably, that employees enjoy a range of benefits such as the weekly Lifestyle Hour to use as you wish, and their Family Hour option which makes a day of annual leave go so much further across the year.
