Litigation Paralegal.
 
If you are you a paralegal keen to support a busy litigation department? This North Shields-based firm is looking for a new civil litigation paralegal to help with their rapid influx of cases due to some key wins. 
 
Established in 2000, this North Shields-based law firm has worked with thousands of clients nationwide providing legal advice and support. They have a reputation for excellent client care which yields return business but also a very low attrition rate. You will be joining a small team but with room to expand further, creating realistic career progression opportunities. You can also expect to receive a highly competitive salary, free parking and offers for flexible working.
 
In this Litigation Paralegal role, you will assist the assisting fee earners that have had a recent influx of cases. Duties will include taking instructions, issuing court proceedings, drafting applications to court and preparing trial bundles.

You will be supporting fee earners whose caseload contains a mix of civil disputes, with a focus on mis-sold solar panels. This firm has had great success over the last 18 months in this area, litigating against finance companies and winning cases either at trial or settling just before, with a 98% success rate.
 
To be considered for this role it is essential that you have previous experience supporting a busy department. You will also need to be an excellent communicator, both verbal and written.

You will need to be organised as this position will require you to manage your time effectively, working towards tight deadlines and looking after multiple fee earners.
 
In return, you can expect a highly competitive salary and benefits package, in a firm that has genuine career progression prospects.
