They are currently looking for an Associate to work in their Professional Liability team, with a focus on Construction Professional Indemnity cases. This role will be based in their Taunton office, however there is flexibility in terms of working from home for a few days per week, and the potential to work from their Bristol office on an ad-hoc basis.

What you'll get in return
Joining this highly experienced and supportive team, you will be offered the training and tools to be successful.
