About Leigh Day

We are a top 100 law firm committed to claimant-only cases, ensuring that individuals have the same access to justice as the UK Government and large corporations.

Our International team is known for cases involving multinational corporations where environmental harm or human rights abuses have been alleged. Notable cases include representing around 2,000 Malawian tobacco farmers and their children in a claim against British American Tobacco Plc in respect of claims of forced and child labour on farms allegedly supplying tobacco to the company. The team is also acting on high-profile environmental/emissions claims against automotive manufacturers, as well as developing competition laws cases and capability.

About the role

We have an opportunity for a Solicitor with 3-5 years PQE to join the team to support our Partners with managing our competition cases, developing new matters, and growing our practice.
