Senior Litigation Lawyer required to join a local authority based in Hertfordshire for an initial 3 month period with the view for permanent prospects.
This is a fantastic opportunity to join a well-established small local authority. It is centrally located, within walking distance from shops, bars and restaurants, as well as a train station which has frequent links to London.
The successful Litigation Lawyer will carry a busy caseload of varied litigation matters, with a focus on general civil litigation, housing, taxi licensing, and enforcement. You will be responsible for managing a small team of five which comprises of lawyers and paralegals/ support staff. The client is keen for candidates to have experience in both areas of law and be able to delegate matters accordingly including one to ones.
Due to the work involved, our client is keen to hear from people with previous local government experience as this type of background would lend itself nicely due to the range of litigation work involved.
