We are currently looking for a litigation lawyer, solicitor, or barrister, to join a well-regarded legal services team in a London Council.
This is an excellent post for a qualified solicitor or barrister who is wanting to extend their experience in public sector litigation work. We are looking for a litigation lawyer to advise client officers, and have conduct of litigation on behalf of the council. Local Authority experience is highly desirable.
The successful litigation lawyer will work on a wide range of general litigation matters, at all levels of court and tribunals including injunction applications, property, contract, public law and complex debt enforcement litigation. The work load will involve some complex litigation but the litigation lawyer must also be willing to take on 'bread and butter' litigation.
The litigation team is very friendly and supportive, and can offer some training where appropriate. The team and council are highly regarded and have worked on some really interesting cases.
The post will suit an ambitious team player who will be able to adapt well within the local authority. Our client is happy to consider candidates from either a public sector or private practice background. The role is all remote working to start off with but there may be occasional office presence required after June. The Council offices are easily accessible via public transport. The role is locum initially for 3 months and is likely to be extended for 6-9 months.
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 Rayhaneh Tehrani in our Manchester office for a confidential discussion.
