The Cardiff Commercial Dispute Resolution team sits within a global litigation practice and is recognised by The Lawyer as the 7th largest disputes practice in the world.  As an integral part of the team, you will provide support on a wide range of high-quality CDR work, including exposure to clients in diverse sectors and will also handle your own matters under supervision.

  • Ability to analyse complex factual situations and distil the key issues clearly and concisely and persuade others through logical reasoning. You will provide a first rate client service both internally and externally.
  • Evidence of exposure to clients/counsel/experts is required.
  • Exposure to business development activities and a good understanding of how to win work is desirable.
  • To be successful, you must be able to operate at a fast pace in a vibrant office environment. You will use your strong communication skills to build effective relationships with existing and new clients, introducing clients to other teams or practice groups.


  • Provide strategic, transactional and commercial legal advice on litigation cases, supporting the Partners and wider Commercial Dispute Resolution team.
  • As an integral part of the team, you will handle a number of your own matters under supervision.
  • Be pro-active and willing to get involved in business development and contribute to the strategic direction of the team.
  • This varied role offers a wide range of high quality commercial dispute resolution work, including exposure to clients in diverse sectors.
  • You will have access to sector specialists and be expected to work with these contacts across the firm to help develop growth areas for the team.
