FOCUS ON CATASTROPHIC INJURY
This department concentrates exclusively on complex catastrophic injury work above £500K in value whether RTA or EL/PL-related. The successful applicant will focus on developing relationships with a number of key clients of the firm, whilst reporting into the lead Partner in the team.
EXCEPTIONAL CANDIDATE WANTED
Applicants should already have gained a thorough grounding in multi track work as well as being able to demonstrate a consistently strong academic record. Previous experience of catastrophic work above £500K would be an obvious advantage, though candidates with lower-value multi track experience may be considered depending on their general aptitude.
Excellent client care skills are crucial as well as the ability to deliver sound 'commercial' advice on matters. The recruiting Partner is looking for accomplished, confident solicitors who are ready to take a major step up in their career.

This is a role for a more experienced Associate or Senior Associate within a team which continues to expand across the North. There is already considerable opportunity for progression, into more senior positions of management, including Partnership, for the right candidate.
Those who have already gained multi track experience from a respected claimant or defendant firm and who are looking for a real challenge, should certainly consider applying.
