Media Law Solicitor (Waterloo Office)

Edwards Duthie Shamash Solicitors, a Legal 500 firm, has an exciting opportunity for a solicitor to join its growing Media Team at our Waterloo office. A 3-5 years PQE solicitor with Media Law experience is considered ideal for this role but our focus is to find a candidate who is the right fit for the firm, team and clients.

The role will also cover our work within the political sector as we have served as the Labour Party’s external solicitors since 1990. We represent MPs and other politicians in defamation claims, judicial review and other civil disputes, and those facing standards tribunals for allegations of misconduct. Applicants must have experience of Media law and litigation.

The successful candidate will demonstrate the following skills:

  • Excellent written and verbal communication and negotiation skills
  • Strong organisational skills with the capability to run a number of files, work on matters simultaneously and to meet deadlines.
  • Ability to build and maintain collaborative relationships with clients and within own team.
  • Strong problem-solving skills and attention to detail.
  • Proficiency in legal research and document drafting.
  • Excellent IT skills and self-sufficient.
  • The highest standards of client care and compliance.
  • The successful candidate must also have an interest in the marketing and development of the team.

Some travel between the offices and client sites may be expected from time to time.
