Job Introduction

We are seeking a Contract Lawyer with litigation experience. This is an exciting opportunity to support our market-leading Financial Services Disputes and Investigations (FSDI) team in Bristol. Our FSDI team is one of the UK's largest teams in the field of financial services litigation, comprising over 150 people across our offices in Bristol, Manchester, London, Belfast and Glasgow. We are rated by Chambers as being in the top tier of firms outside of London advising in this area.

This is a 3-6 month contract offered on a day rate basis, inside IR35. The likelihood of contract extension on this role is high and many of our contractors go on to secure more permanent contracts if they desire to do so.

Your Role

As an Contract Lawyer you will be part of a supportive team. As we are the go-to law firm within the financial services sector, you will be working with several UK and international clients, such as Natwest Group, Lloyds Banking Group and Nationwide Building Society, in addition to a number of others.

  • Assisting with production of legal updates and know-how development

Your Skills and Experience

We are looking for a Solicitor or Chartered Legal Executive. You will have experience of running your own caseload of litigation matters (subject to supervision), with a thorough understanding of the CPR and the litigation process.

Ideally you will be experienced in acting in the financial services sector on contentious matters, however, we are also keen to receive applications from those with a background in insurance litigation, property litigation or commercial litigation.

You will be/have:

  • A Qualified Solicitor (SRA or Law Society Registered), or Chartered Legal Executive, ideally 2-6PQE, however we will consider applications from those outside of this bracket
  • A forward thinker, with excellent analytical, communication and organisational skills
  • Self-motivated with the ability to manage workloads and deadlines
  • Commercially aware with enthusiasm for business development and an appetite for keeping up-to-date with the latest developments in your practice area and sector focus
  • Able to understand your client’s business needs and act in the best interest of the firm and the client
  • An ambitious and enthusiastic team player, able to support senior fee earners and contribute to our collaborative culture.
