Research and Development Solicitor



My client is a specialist Law Practice based in the picturesque city of Liverpool and are recruiting for an experienced Solicitor to join their Research and Development Department. The firm have a solid reputation and feature in the Legal 500 as well as being Law Society accredited, a member of AvMA and Lexcel accredited. They are seeking a Research and Development Solicitor to join their team specialising in Civil Litigation.

The successful Solicitor will possess excellent research and analytical skills to become part of the team dealing with the development of new concepts to be brought to market as new claim types.

The role will focus primarily on undertaking legal research, considering the legal and practical issues that may arise in bringing the claims and obtaining external opinion on the legal and commercial merits of the proposed new claim type in order to prepare a briefing pack for consideration and approval by the board of directors. A candidate will be required to work independently and as part of a team reporting to Head of Department.

In addition, a candidate will also be responsible for undertaking background research in relation to any new concepts that are proposed to the business from outside sources and will be expected to participate in providing technical support in relation to existing claim types.

The ideal candidate must have a background in the law and should have previous experience in undertaking research and development duties in previous roles, however, this is not essential. Candidates should be able to demonstrate excellent research and analytical skills and should possess a high level of awareness which will enable the individual to identify whether a concept is capable of being successful from both a legal and commercial perspective.

If you are interested in applying or hearing more about the role, please send a copy of your CV to Leanne @ or alternatively, call on 01772 259121 for an informal discussion.
