The firm employ over 1000 people with 110 partners across 6 offices in all 3 UK jurisdictions and are described as an 'energetic ambitious firm' with an 'open minded entrepreneurial culture' and have been named as a 'first class' employer by Best Companies.

Your new role
Reporting to Partners you will undertake a range of commercial litigation work including a significant volume of professional negligence cases, acting for a number of lenders.
You will be a central part of the team's growth plans across all areas of litigation and other dispute resolution practice undertaken with the intention of providing in due course a full spectrum of litigation support to clients, ensuring that a full-service commercial offering is available to clients.
As a successful FS Disputes Solicitor you will deliver the following:
- Manage your own varied caseload, drive these through to completion and understand the strategic importance of each case in a wider context.
- You will lead business development initiatives to maximising new clients within the professional negligence arena, whilst cross selling effectively to existing clients.
- You will manage, supervise and mentor a team of solicitors and paralegals. You will manage each individual's personal performance ensuring their career development goals are being met and the firm continues to maintain a low employee turnover.
