    An extremely rare opportunity for a Sports/ Media or Commercial Litigation Solicitor to join a prestigious Top 100 commercial law firm based in Manchester City Centre. The team are seeking an ambitious and responsible solicitor with previous experience in handling commercial disputes and a demonstrable interest in Sports / Entertainment law.


    Job title: Sports & Commercial Litigation solicitor

    Location: Manchester City Centre

    Salary: Very Competitive (based on experience)

    Previous Experience: NQ - 7 years' PQE

    My client is a reputable law firm with a comprehensive legal network, providing a bespoke approach to delivering commercial and effective advice. The firm is agile, progressive and easy to engage with which makes it a pleasant, stimulating and attractive place to work.

    The Role:

    The Partner has over 20 years' experience in Sports/Entertainment law and boasts an impressive following of quality work in the industry, with extensive experience in commercial dispute resolution and working alongside famous sportspeople and entertainment providers internationally.

    This is an exceptionally rare opportunity within the market for Sports / Entertainment law and is ideal for a solicitor with Commercial Litigation experience (and ideally, some hands on Sports Law exposure — desirable, but not necessary!).

    The Ideal Candidate:

    The successful candidate should have an ability to adopt a commercial perspective rather than simply an 'academic' approach to legal issues and be able to deal confidently and professionally with clients. The ideal candidate for this position will have at least a year's experience in handling commercial disputes and preferably have an interest in Sports / Entertainment law too.
