Commercial Litigation Solicitor / FCILEx / Senior Paralegal

Commercial Litigation Solicitor / FCILEx / Senior Paralegal

  • About the Firm: Lyons Davidson is a national law practice of around 900 employees operating from offices in Bristol, Solihull, Leeds, New Malden and Cardiff, and our associated practice in Edinburgh, Lyons Davidson Scotland LLP.
  • The Role: We are looking for a Solicitor/FCILEx or equivalent to work within the Contract Resolution Group, which forms part of our Civil Litigation Division.
  • Looking For: We are looking to secure your good legal knowledge, and ability to demonstrate problem solving skills; your essential experience of handling their own caseload and working to tight deadlines is also essential. Your experience of dealing with insurance funded clients is also desirable.
  • Opportunities: You will run a caseload of a wide variety of Civil Litigation cases (no personal injury) mainly but not exclusively arising from contractual disputes. Most of the work involves acting for Claimants referred by Legal Expense Insurers, but the Group also deals with a significant number of commercial and private instructions where we act for Claimants and Defendants and where the work is often complex and high value.
  • And more: You will possess strong organisational skills; a pragmatic approach to solving problems; a client focused approach; excellent communication skills; and an ability and knowledge of working with a case management system.
