Dispute Resolution Solicitor Vacancy

Dispute Resolution Solicitor


We are looking to recruit a 4+ years PQE dispute resolution solicitor, to help further develop our very successful and friendly litigation team in London. The successful candidate will be a highly motivated and ambitious lawyer and keen to help further develop this successful department. Some employment law is a must.


Our team advises creditors, company directors, employees, employers, government departments, lenders and shareholders, and SMEs.

Over the last decade we have built an enviable reputation for our contentious practice, having been instructed on several high-profile assignments. This area of practice has been earmarked for significant growth in the next 12 months which is reflected in our marketing and business plan budget.

Operating near Holborn close to the Roll Buildings and Inns of Court we are conveniently placed to offer a fast and efficient service to a home grown and international client base. We have strong connections in Spain and South America which we are keen to develop. We are also members of ILAS, the International Lawyers and Accountancy Solutions network.

The Candidate Required

The successful candidate will ideally have gained experience in an established Central London or regional practice. Candidates must be technically excellent but, equally important, commercially aware and enthusiastic about business development. We very much want team players with a strong client focused approach. They will also have a good academic background and excellent communication and organisational skills.

We are looking for a 4+ years PQE solicitor to join the thriving litigation team and assist a partner in the employment department. The ability to relate well to professional, experienced clients is also required.

The Opportunity

You will be given early responsibility and opportunities to develop client relationships and expand the department.

We are looking for solicitors that really wish to excel professionally and who want to be a part of a well- resourced, cohesive and friendly collegiate team. We have always had a relaxed dress down environment and also offer remote or agile working with our Cloud based document management system.

About The Firm

The firm was formed by Jeremy Boyle over 15 years ago with a view to providing specialist contentious insolvency advice. Since then, we have carefully earmarked and grown other areas of practice which complement the insolvency related work for which we are recognised. We have a long-standing reputation for delivering high-quality legal advice rooted in our belief that clients are our major asset and client care must come first. Our global reach via ILAS and cross-border ‘know how’ ensures that we are well-placed to assist with matters in Europe and further afield alike.

We champion change and promote progress to make business work better for people. Summit Law has embedded a range of team initiatives to create an environment in which our team can flourish. For several years, even prior to the epidemic we have operated an agile working scheme, which offers our employees flexibility in terms of where, and how, they work. Our Cloud-based IT system means you can work on your smart phone or tablet, from anywhere in the world.
