Job Description

Litigation Solicitor 3+PQE Portsmouth

We are exclusively instructed on this exciting in house role - not very often will you find in house roles for litigation solicitors.

You are likely to have around 3-4PQE in commercial litigation with experience of debt recovery. This private finance provider is a peer to peer funded bridging lender and development finance provider. Our client provides and arranges funding by an established online platform which has over 13,500 investors and has raised over £230 million. Our client offers much more flexibility than standard banks and bridging lenders. They make quick decisions and all debt is secured.

There are around 100 loans at any one time and these tend to be around the £1-3million mark, so this is not high volume, low value lending. The role is to effectively manage the whole process of repayment from issuing reminders as the end of term approaches, thereafter review security documents, issue all relevant demands, manage any recovery an enforcement litigation.

Your role is to effectively ensure debt and repayment is managed effectively and efficiently. You will keep in contact with borrowers and, when payments and redemptions are due, will work to ensure they are paid timely. In cases where there are issues relating to non-payment of debts, you will take steps to quickly and efficiently realise the monies by enforcing the charges secured over assets.

Any broader commercial experience would be advantageous although not a pre-requisite as you will work closely with the Head of Legal and can expect to gain some non-contentious experience if you wish to do so. There is also an existing legal assistant.

The professional and financial rewards are excellent - you will play a key role in helping our client's business run effectively. Bonus and other benefits.
