Solicitor – Insolvency – Bristol
We have an exciting opportunity for an ambitious Solicitor to progress their career working within our friendly, forward thinking and close-knit insolvency team working in Bristol.
Hours: Full time
Vacancy Reference: 456-LBL
Our Insolvency team are seeking a Solicitor to support the team with day to day work and business networking.
You will enjoy access to a wide variety of Insolvency work, managing your own caseload from inception to conclusion, exercising professional judgement with regard to established Clarke Willmott case management system and client protocols.
Working closely with our Partner, Martin Askew, and experienced solicitors in the wider national team, you will have access to plenty of one-on-one support, guidance and supervision, whilst taking responsibility for your own files and gaining confidence in your own individual style. This role is a great opportunity for you to gain experience in both personal and corporate insolvency. The department has a heavy emphasis on contentious work pursuing claims on behalf of office holders against directors and others to recover assets for the benefit of creditors.
It is an integral part of this role that you comply with data security and all firm policies and procedures.
We are looking for someone who can make an immediate impact, and the role would be well suited to a newly qualified or junior ambitious solicitor who is looking to progress their career within Insolvency and restructuring within a supportive firm. You will have already gained some good experience in this field or a related field, during your training contract and/or within the first year since you qualified. You’ll be keen to develop your expertise in this field undertaking complex and varied insolvency work.
You’ll need a strong intellect to succeed in this role, so we will be looking for a corresponding level of consistent academic achievement. You’ll also need to show us that you have initiative, drive and great organisational skills. The work requires self-motivation, resilience and strong communication skills, both written and oral.
You will relish helping others and be eager to learn. We expect you to be someone who takes pride in your work and who will provide a first class service to our clients, anticipating their needs in advance wherever possible, and paying meticulous attention to detail in all of your work.
We are looking for someone with a willingness to develop their business development skills, with the confidence and drive to initiate new business contacts and nurture current client relationships through lots of one-to-one contact and networking.
Finally, legal practice is about people and this is very much a team orientated role.
