It's no secret that we're an ambitious firm and our vision and our culture truly reflects that. At the heart of this is an outstanding client experience, something that Womble Bond Dickinson prides itself on, and it's something that we've become so well known for. The Legal Solutions Centre (LSC) is an essential part of our business made up of over 70 paralegals and legal executives, project managers, data analysts and client co-ordinators. They use flexible resourcing and time-saving technology to deliver a high-quality, cost-effective service for a range of large scale projects.
Our dedicated Paralegal Team are now on the lookout for an experienced Litigation Paralegal to join them.
What will you be doing?
Our Recovery+ team act on behalf of leading utilities, infrastructure and retail organisations providing a comprehensive recoveries and dispute resolution service. Your role will see you working on a range of matters which for debt recovery will include producing pre-action letters, issuing, executing and completing claims through the County Court, enforcing Judgment Orders where necessary, drafting Statutory Demands, issuing Bankruptcy and Winding Up Proceedings or dealing with strategic resolution of litigated consumer claims brought against our clients.
So what are we looking for?
We're looking for someone who has experience of issuing or defending litigation claims. What's also important to us is the great skills you're going to be able to bring with you. There's a great level of responsibility so you'll need to be proactive, motivated and able to manage your workload effectively. You'll also be highly organised, efficient and able to prioritise effectively as we often work to tight and urgent deadlines. As this is a client facing role, you'll be expected to build and maintain strong relationships, recognising what matters most to our clients and offering them commercial solutions. Whether you've built these skills in legal or non-legal roles in a completely different sector, we'd love to hear from you.
