LITIGATION PROJECT MANAGER – TOP TIER FIRM
Our client, a top tier Legal 500 and Chambers Ranked firm is looking to strengthen its numbers with the appointment of an experienced litigator/project manager.
Our client is one of the most successful law firms in the UK, independently recommended in 26 specialist practice areas by the leading legal directories and with widespread awards recognition, including National Law Firm of the Year. Representing clients from individuals and sole traders to SME’s and large organisations including many household names and global corporations, their work covers the breadth of the country and overseas. The service offered is second to none, which is reflected in their on-going growth in every department.
The Dispute Resolution team is looking to recruit a litigation project manager to work closely with it on projects within the team – both ongoing “chargeable” pieces of litigation as well as internal projects which the team wants to implement to enhance its client service offering.
Key responsibilities include, running large electronic disclosure exercises for ongoing matters; managing costs on large pieces of litigation; implementing projects identified as part of business planning; working closely with the litigation PSL to deliver a comprehensive training programme and suite of precedents for the use of lawyers; and contributing to project management of firm wide and departmental initiatives
A successful candidate will be a qualified lawyer with project management and/or litigious experience looking for a change from pure fee earning work. They will ideally have a Legal Project Management qualification but in any event will need to be strongly self-motivated with a pro-active and logical approach to planning. We are looking for someone hands on and able to bring a fresh and innovative perspective to the ways the department is currently doing things with a view to changing established practices if it is appropriate.
As a result, we would expect that the ideal candidate will be a self-starter, logical thinker and a team player with an enthusiastic approach to working as part of a very successful litigation team.

- Travel and parking allowance
- Interest free season ticket loan
- BUPA Membership
- Life/Death cover
- iPhone for business and personal use
