We’re growing our Dispute Resolution team.  We've already recruited a number of lawyers and are looking for more. 


Our lawyers are “pragmatic, sensible and intelligent” (Chambers).  Our Dispute Resolution team is a major UK litigation practice which is “very commercially orientated” (Chambers).  We are recognised for handling a broad range of disputes for significant national and international clients. 

Burges Salmon has been named RollOnFriday Law Firm of the year for three consecutive years.


We have built a strong reputation for core litigation services and have developed significant disputes practices in a range of industry sectors and legal specialisms including Transport, Financial Services, Energy, Pensions, Fraud & White Collar Crime, Banking, IP, Heath & Safety, Food, Agriculture and Real Estate.

Our junior lawyers get to work across a range of different practice areas before specialising and the nature of cases they handle range from team working on market leading, complex litigation to commercial cases for which they can assume prime responsibility.

Our clients operate in both the private and public sectors, and include Airbus, BBC, Coca Cola HBC, Discovery Channel, Eurostar, Harrods, FirstGroup, Victoria's Secret, The Crown Estate, National Crime Agency, Nationwide Building Society and Royal Bank of Scotland. 

We carry out litigation in London, internationally and throughout the rest of the UK, so candidates will be expected to have the flexibility to work in different locations and before different tribunals.  We are regularly involved in arbitrations and in industry-specific dispute resolution procedures, as well as acting in major regulatory and criminal investigations.


You should have excellent academics, coupled with evidence of good quality training and experience gained at a firm with a reputation for high quality commercial disputes work.  You should be a strong team player with excellent interpersonal, client and commercial skills.  You will also need to be adaptable and able to deal with complex work.

We're committed to finding the right person for this role and are open to discussing flexible working patterns.
