The decisions and actions of the UK government are subject to great scrutiny. As a result, GLD litigation lawyers conduct a wide range of often high-profile cases, frequently involving questions of constitutional importance.

As a Litigation Lawyer, you’ll work within one of three specialised departments. Whether it’s Defence and Security, Home Office and Immigration or Justice and Development, you’ll handle high-profile public and private law for central government departments, security agencies and other public bodies.

You’ll be comfortable making quick and informed decisions about matters of significant national importance. From litigating on behalf of government and providing legal advice to supporting Senior Lawyers and the Deputy Director. You’ll frequently work with external partners to help control the quality of their input, develop and maintain strong working relationships, and play a proactive role in monitoring and improving the knowledge of your team.
