We are looking for a Paralegal/ Legal Executive to join a growing litigation team which specialises in property disputes and provides an all-encompassing service for our property clients. This is an excellent opportunity to become an integral part of the team, who have been ranked by Chambers & Partners as leaders in the field of Property Litigation. You will be responsible for running a small case load and to provide assistance to senior colleagues.
The role will report to the head of the department with day to day support for other colleagues depending on the type and complexity of the work.
Previous experience of litigation is ideal but a conveyancing or property background will also be considered. You should be able to demonstrate a good understanding of the Tribunal process and/or advising in detail on property matters. Training will however be offered to support the right candidate to progress in this specialist area.
A law degree is not essential but it will be a distinct advantage, as will a strong background in a legal environment.
You will be joining a very busy team so you will need to be energetic, enthusiastic and work well under pressure and well with others. Managing a caseload also means being highly organised and the ability to prioritise is key. You will have good communication skills and be able to demonstrate commitment and drive whilst delivering high quality service at all times.
The ideal candidate will be bright and committed to a career in law and willing to hit the ground running and to use their initiative.
Working hours are 9:00 to 17:00 Monday to Friday, candidates should be able to start early February 2021. The role is based in Hove, East Sussex. Please email Sarah Cummins on SMPC@deanwilson.co.uk with your CV and covering letter.
