Owen Reed are recruiting for a Legal Secretary to join a top law firm in London. The Legal Secretary will work within the disputes team.
We are looking for an extremely organised and proactive secretary to provide a high level of professional support to three associates who sit in Disputes. We envisage the role will be predominately supporting those in the Contentious Trust Team. Our dispute resolution team handles a full range of litigation matters, from contract claims to large scale, complex multi-jurisdictional disputes and judicial review. The successful candidate does not necessarily need Contentious Trust experience but it would be beneficial if they have this, or if they possess any litigation experience e.g. previous experience in practice areas like Employment, would be advantageous.
We are looking for someone that can quickly become an integral part of an established team. Being a team player is key to this role, therefore the ideal candidate must be able to build rapport with other members of the team, actively seek to help when they have capacity and can use their initiative when necessary. Also, it is important for the candidate to be able to work in a fast-paced environment and pick up pace when things get busy.
