Dispute Resolution Solicitor - Banking & Finance
Bristol - Top 100 Law Firm - Competitive Salary
Yolk Recruitment is working alongside one of the fastest-growing law firms in the UK. This firm, which is part of the UK's Top 100, has expanded from a local practice to a major player with seven offices in the South West with exciting expansion plans to become a nationwide player.
The company's values focus on helping clients achieve their goals while also promoting staff success, which has contributed to the firm's growth. Collaboration is crucial, and the company prioritises business development and integrated thinking to provide its services. This presents an exciting opportunity for an ambitious person to thrive.
You will have the chance to shape your career with a focus on personal well being. The company offers support and professional development through various Academy programs designed to help staff realise their potential. Flexible working is part of the norm, with personalised packages that cater to individual needs.
Recently, the firm has recruited several senior lawyers from rival firms, and is building a formidable reputation, which will make it appealing to many potential candidates.
This is what you will be doing
In this role, you will have the opportunity to work with a diverse and high-profile client base, while being part of a supportive and dynamic team that values success and personal growth.
Collaboration is essential in this position, as you will work across regional offices on a range of commercial litigation instructions for clients including financial institutions, multinational organisations, SMEs, and locally owned businesses.
The team is led by an experienced Partner whose insights are crucial to the team's current success. You will be expected to provide a high quality service only offered by a select few.
This is what you'll bring to the team
To succeed in this role, you must have specialised expertise in commercial litigation and a proven track record of handling banking litigation, as most of the job entails working with prominent lenders and high street banks.
Our clients are ideally looking for candidates with a minimum of two years PQE, however, more pertinent to the role efficiently managing your own caseload and possess relevant commercial litigation experience.
Our client is looking for someone with a passion for business development, who is eager to network and establish a local presence.
Whilst it is ideal to have financial ombudsman experience, it is not necessary, and any relevant background in Banking & Finance, Energy & Infrastructure, or Retail & Consumer will be considered favourably.
This is what you will get in return
The position offers flexible arrangements that allow for remote work and office location, providing a suitable work-life balance.
In addition, the role comes with significant perks, such as the Lifestyle Hour, a weekly benefit that can be used at the employee's discretion.
Our client's Family Hour option allows for an extended annual leave experience throughout the year.
