We are looking for a Senior Litigation Solicitor to join a great local authority based in London on a contract basis.

The successful Senior Litigation Solicitor will be dealing with a variety of civil litigation - with a housing and property focus. This will include:

  • Anti-social behaviour
  • Disrepair
  • Landlord and tenant
  • Civil and Criminal Litigation
  • Homelessness
  • Appear as the Council's advocate in Courts, Tribunals, Inquiries or other hearings as appropriate
  • Draft, prepare and collate pleadings, witness statements, summonses, complaints, indictments and other legal documentation

This role would suit a Litigation Lawyer who is flexible and able to prioritise tasks effectively. Previous experience of working for a local authority would be desirable for this role, although not essential provided that a good knowledge of housing law within the public sector is held.

In return, the client is offering a competitive hourly rate along with some flexibility with working arrangements, to include up to 2 days working from home.
