Now Hiring: Property Litigation Solicitor

We are looking to recruit a property litigation solicitor of 3-7+ years PQE.

We offer an attractive salary, a generous holiday entitlement, a worthwhile bonus scheme, flexible working, private medical insurance, life insurance and a sociable work environment, amongst other benefits.

The firm provides an interesting and varied case load, with some truly high-quality work, and a tried and tested environment to develop a legal career. For example, 60% of our solicitors started at the firm as paralegals, before becoming trainee solicitors, associate solicitors and now, in two cases, partners.

We are a diverse and inclusive workplace where everyone feels they belong. We have a fantastic team – two thirds of our solicitors and solicitor partners are women – and our staff speak eight different languages.

The solicitor we are looking for will have a full case-load from day one, but will be actively encouraged to engage in networking and marketing (attending MIPIM, etc) and to develop a new client following.

Please email james@naylorllp.co.uk if you are interested in this position.
