A rare opportunity has become available for a Commercial Litigation Solicitor to join this top 100 Global law firm. The role would be based in Edinburgh (with continued flexible working) and suitable for applicants from 0-2 years of PQE.

This role sits within a team of fee earners, and reports to a partner. The successful candidate will be a commercial litigation lawyer who can take the lead on mid-sized claims with lighter supervision and support partners and senior associates.  Work areas include a broad range of disputes and litigation including contractual and commercial disputes and regulatory investigations.

Candidates must (consistent with the years of experience) be good problem solvers and be able to demonstrate an ability to identify key issues, actions required, timescales, and strategy to contribute to the handling of litigation and dispute resolution.
