Commercial Litigation Solicitor (1+ years PQE)

Davidson Chalmers Stewart is a specialist commercial legal practice with clients across Scotland. We pride ourselves on providing clients with excellent quality service which combines first-rate technical legal skills with practical, commercial advice.

Our Dispute Resolution team, based in our Edinburgh office and headed by Sheila Webster, is recognised for both its commercial litigation practice and for the specialist skills we have in property litigation. We act for a variety of businesses and individuals in business, from start-ups to SME’s to a variety of blue-chip companies. The team has grown to meet the needs of our clients in the last year, and now looks to continue to grow with the appointment of an experienced commercial litigation solicitor.

If you have had a good background in commercial litigation, are around 1 year’s PQE (or an NQ with at least one year of litigation experience in your traineeship) and are a motivated, commercially-minded individual with a desire to be part of a developing team, then we would like to hear from you.

The successful candidate is likely to have had experience of a varied caseload of commercial litigation, including some of the following: contracts disputes, property litigation, professional negligence, regulatory litigation, contentious construction claims, and corporate support litigation. You will have experience of appearing in court on behalf of clients. In addition to excellent technical skills, you will be confident about working independently within a supportive environment, be enthusiastic about developing new skills, and have the drive to help build a successful Dispute Resolution team.

We are looking for a candidate with some experience in business development, both with existing clients and with the wider business community, and to be enthusiastic about marketing professional services.
