Qualifications and Experience

The successful candidate should be a team player, with strong academics and experience - typically with a major City or leading national/regional practice - and possess excellent communication and negotiation skills.
First-class support and learning and development opportunities are provided and early responsibility is offered, including an expectation that all team members run appropriate cases with minimum supervision.
In return you will be rewarded with a market leading salary (outside London), and a comprehensive package of benefits.
