- For the second role, you will have 3+ years PQE in dealing with reputation protection matters. You will be working as part of the Reputation Protection team, supporting the partners and more senior fee-earners in all aspects of their practice. You will be given some responsibility for managing smaller cases and will be expected to play an active role in business development.
The successful candidates must have excellent technical and client-facing skills, a good academic record, and an ability to handle a varied and complex caseload.
