    Property Litigation Associate Solicitor - Top 50 - London

    Job Description

    A standout opportunity for a Property Litigation Solicitor to join a Top 50 firm in London and work on a varied and interesting caseload.  

    The Firm

    Our client is a commercial law firm with over 180 partners and over 1100 staff worldwide. It has grown by about 50% in the last five years and its annual turnover is now around £220m. Unlike many firms these days, they are a London-centric firm, with two-thirds of their fees generated in London (although they do also have eight overseas offices).

    The firm's full trophy cabinet reflects continued external recognition for its successes (e.g. Times Best Law Firms 2020, Litigation and Dispute Resolution Team of the Year in 2018).                                                                                             

    The Team

    Their award-winning litigation practice has a market-leading reputation and is highly respected by clients and peers alike. It is the largest practice area within the firm and therefore, as you would expect, a major force. Their litigators handle all aspects of litigation and arbitration, including financial and banking disputes, recovery and insolvency, professional negligence, intellectual property, information technology, construction and engineering, fraud and asset tracing, property disputes, trust litigation, and business investigations and regulation. 

    The team is led by a Chambers & Partners ranked property litigation partner. The team sits as a specialist sub-group within the firm's strong, profitable, and hugely regarded Commercial Litigation group.  This provides many advantages in terms of being able to draw on their know-how and resources. As you would expect we also work very closely with the firm's strong and growing Real Estate practice group. 

    The Role

    They are a busy team with a large amount of interesting work. You will have a very varied workload and will be running your own cases as well as working alongside the partners on larger more complex cases. You will quickly find yourself given large amounts of responsibility and client contact, but within a close-knit supportive environment with partner input whenever you need it.

    The firm takes a lot of care in developing its associates. Their two-property litigation partners spend a lot of time working with and nurturing, the associates in the team. Because the team sits within one of the general Commercial Litigation groups, there will also be some scope, if you wish, to obtain experience on more general commercial disputes to complement your skills as a property litigator. Both property litigation partners are solicitor advocates. The appointee will have the opportunity to develop his/her advocacy skills should he/she want to.
