We have an exciting opportunity for a paralegal with 2 + years’ experience to join our very successful and friendly team in Holborn.
Summit Law has long-established relationships with a range of intermediaries, referrers and repeat clients.
Our team advises high net worth individuals, entrepreneurs, and SME’s. Traditionally Summit Law has been renowned for its restructuring and insolvency law know-how and now wishes to expand by making lateral hires and growing the team.
Summit Law is conveniently placed to offer a fast and efficient service to a home grown and international client base. We have connections in the Middle and Far East, Spain, and South America which we are keen to develop.
One of our partners also sits as a board member on ILAS, the International Lawyers and Accountancy Solutions network who meet twice yearly in Europe to discuss growing trends and developments in legal and accountancy matters.
We are very much looking for team players with a strong client focussed approach so cultural fit is key to Summit Law’s philosophy.
Accordingly, what is paramount is that you enjoy working with colleagues who are like-minded and where you enjoy the friendly, collegiate, and supportive environment.
As well as being able to use document management and time recording systems the successful candidate will also have excellent communication and organisational skills.
Quick and accurate typing skills and knowledge of Microsoft packages are a must as well as a smart appearance and excellent communication and time management skills.
Experience of working in the Litigation department at a law firm is essential. We are also looking for a candidate who has a keen interest in marketing and business development who would be able to attend some networking events and write blogs and other marketing material.
The salary on offer will be competitive, we offer 25 days a year of annual leave plus a day off for your birthday! We provide laptops so can offer a hybrid working environment.
Your duties will include legal research, drafting applications and forms, preparing bundles, assisting with the preparation of witness statements, liaising with clients, the Court and Counsel, attending conferences and Court and generally assisting the team with all administration requests.
At Summit Law we have always looked to do things a little differently. For example way before the pandemic we had already introduced a dress down policy every day so unless you are seeing new clients or are in court, there is no need to wear a business suit. After all who likes going to the dry cleaners.
We are proud of our Team Member Award to reward hard work where team members have gone the extra mile. We also have quarterly team bonding and collaboration lunches in Covent Garden.
About The Firm
Summit Law is a Law Society Lexcel accredited law firm formed by Jeremy Boyle over 14 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 is paramount. 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 have recently moved premises into modern serviced offices in close proximity to Royal Courts of Justice and most barrister’s chambers.
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. We operate an agile working scheme, which offers our employees flexibility in terms of where, and how, they work. The latter is supported by our Cloud-based IT system which means you can work on your smart phone or tablet, from anywhere in the world utilising our Cloud based technology and Microsoft 365.
