Experienced and motivated lawyer to join the litigation and property team within a growing Local Authority, based in East Anglia.

This is an excellent opportunity for a litigation lawyer to develop in a supportive environment over a good length of contract. The successful litigation lawyer will be required to conduct a varied caseload of advisory and contentious work; plus challenge as appropriate and represent a diverse client base in both civil and criminal matters.

Whilst currently there is a civil emphasis, due to the wide ranging and evolving nature of the role the successful candidate will also be required to carry a criminal caseload and experience of drafting documentation and attendance at both County and Magistrates Court is therefore desirable.

The role is interesting and fast paced and will cover a mixed caseload of:

  • Housing
  • Homelessness
  • Environmental
  • Regulatory
  • Planning and general litigation work

We welcome applications from qualified lawyers who either have experience of working in a Local Authority or similar environment, or who can adapt current skill sets to move into the public sector.

We encourage interested applicants to apply immediately to be considered for short listing. Alternatively should you require further information or wish to discuss your suitability before applying please contact Leah Edgar in our Manchester office for a confidential discussion.
