Commercial Litigation Solicitor 
This reputed Legal 500 firm are recruiting into their Plymouth Commercial Litigation team. 
This is an unusual position as you will join as a dispute resolution solicitor, but the majority of your time will not be spent fee earning.
As a guide you will likely spend 20-30% of your time fee earning on your own complex disputes matters, and the remainder of your time will be spent working with team leaders and other stakeholders scoping out projects, agreeing training requirements, establishing service standards and methods of quality control, and providing technical supervision and development for the busy team. 
Your caseload will be broad and likely include professional negligence, debt recovery, insolvency, property litigation, contractual disputes, prosecutions involving regulatory and health and safety matters.
This is a senior role and will take a key role in the strategic planning and conduct of complex and high-value work.
You will be expected to take a lead on responses to relevant tenders or do other business development work to support this. You will be included in the senior management team, helping the Director grow the wider business. 
Furthermore, you will continue to grow your own expertise and legal knowledge, supported by a strong learning and development program designed to help you flourish!
To apply for this commercial litigation solicitor vacancy you should have at least 4 years commercial litigation experience, plus already be a strong people manager, looking to develop your own managerial style. 
This is a different role, and won't suit everybody. But if you are an ambitious commercial litigation solicitor looking for a challenging role with a shift in emphasis from your own fee earning, then this could be just right for you. 
Fantastic salary depending on experience. 
Benefits include 25 days holiday, life assurance, pension, private medical healthcare, bonus scheme and flexible benefits package (including buying and selling holiday).
