This property litigation team is one of the largest in the country and has been involved in some of the most complex and high-profile property litigation cases of recent years in the High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court (as well as having been involved in the largest rent review arbitration in history).

The Birmingham team advise and represent clients in all types of Court and also in arbitrations, adjudications and mediations. Advocacy is not for everyone, but those with the right skills and enthusiasm are encouraged to qualify and they do, where required, provide in-house advocates.

The role involves a lot of independent responsibility managing a large number of cases; working independently (with a Partner) and in larger teams (depending on the size and complexity of the particular dispute); advising on and managing all stages of the litigation process from the outset to trial, dealing directly with clients; supervising and bring responsible for more junior lawyers and instructing/working alongside other professionals such as surveyors and advocates.

There is also an opportunity to become a specialist in mines and minerals disputes, rights of light issues, telecoms matters and/or disputes for our Living Sector clients.

The successful candidate will have 6+ years PQE, preferably with experience in development disputes, the ability to manage their own caseload and have experience of supervising junior fee earners.

A top of the Birmingham market salary is offered together with a comprehensive benefits package, a performance related bonus and the ability to work up to 50% of your time from home.
