Current Vacancies

Paralegal - Grenfell Tower Inquiry

Saunders Law seeks a paralegal to assist with matters arising from and in relation to the Grenfell Tower Inquiry.

The firm is friendly, down-to-earth and driven by a desire to provide excellent client care by fighting exceptionally hard for clients' rights. We have previously acted for an individual before the Leveson Inquiry and Parliamentary Committees in the wake of the News of the World phone-hacking scandal. We are also instructed in relation to civil proceedings arising out of the Hillsborough Stadium disaster in 1989, as well as for Core Participants in the ongoing Undercover Policing Inquiry.

With regards to the Grenfell Tower Inquiry, we represent five individual Core Participants who were directly affected by the fire.

We are looking to recruit a paralegal to work alongside a solicitor, primarily focussing on disclosure analysis, client care, legal research, document management, case preparation and billing, as well as attending Inquiry hearings and conferences.

The successful candidate will be flexible and self-motivated, and able to demonstrate a commitment to upholding the rights of individuals. The role involves working both independently and on group tasks, and on client-specific matters and as part of a wider crossfirm group of legal representatives.

The ideal candidate should have an excellent academic record and previous legal experience of one or more of the following areas: actions against the state, inquests, public inquiries, housing law and contract law.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a friendly, busy, and expanding office. We are ranked in Chambers and Partners and the Legal 500. We offer a competitive salary, excellent prospects, training and support.

Email CV and covering letter to Ellie Cornish at by 12 pm on Monday 29th April 2019. Please note that it is anticipated that interviews will take place early the following week.

Commercial Litigation solicitor - 3 years' PQE+ 

Saunders Law is a boutique litigation firm, operating from two sites in the heart of legal London. Regarded as punching above its perceived weight, the firm is regularly instructed in high-profile litigation and public inquiry work.

We are looking to hire a litigation associate solicitor, to work within our commercial litigation and dispute resolution team. This team handles the full-range of commercial litigation as it affects businesses, charities, public bodies and individuals. The team are particularly adept at advising on professional negligence, breach of contract and large-scale debt matters, advising both claimants and defendants.

The ideal candidate will be a qualified solicitor, with between three and six years’ post qualification experience obtained within this jurisdiction.

The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate extensive experience of working on both claimant and defendant breach of contract, debt recovery and professional negligence matters.

Excellent procedural knowledge is essential, as is a commitment to business development and marketing. Ambition, a ‘can do attitude’ and a sense of humour are vital, as is the desire to get involved in new and unfamiliar areas of law, in a collegiate and supportive environment.

We can offer exposure to engaging and exciting work, not routinely undertaken in a smaller and collegiate firm, which is growing rapidly, with excellent opportunities for advancement. Salary shall be dependent on experience.

We look forward to receiving CVs with covering letters which should be marked for the attention of Matthew Purcell ( A covering letter should set out:

  • Current and expected salary
  • Notice period
