Civil Litigation Paralegal

£20,00 - £25,000

Crystal Palace

An established law firm since 1864 with steady continuing growth and development, our client is looking for a conscientious and hardworking paralegal to join their dedicated and client-centric Civil Litigation department in their Crystal Palace office.

The role

You will be a key member of the team, supporting solicitors across a wide range of disputes, focusing on resolving disputes through Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), but where not possible, in the county courts, high courts and in the appeal courts.

You will be supporting the team with preparing documentation, investigations and trial preparation, being responsible for client care as well as supporting Business Development initiatives.

The team is fast-paced, made up of specialist solicitors, who are highly experienced and individually accredited within their field, so there is plenty of opportunity for you to learn and develop in the role and you will be trusted to work autonomously and using your initiative.

Because of this, it’s imperative that you have previous paralegal experience, and can work well under pressure.

What they’re looking for

  • Previous Paralegal/Legal Assistant experience in Civil Litigation
  • Excellent attention to detail and organisational skills
  • Exceptional communication skills at all levels
  • A willingness to learn and contribute to a busy department

What they can offer

  • A competitive salary
  • An open, trusted working environment
  • Supported professional development and the possibility of a training contract
