New defendant clinical negligence senior associate level vacancy with one of the UK's leading firms in this field.

Our client seeks to appoint an experienced defendant clinical negligence associate or senior associate to join their successful team based in Birmingham. You'll ideally have at least 4 years experience in clinical negligence work which may have been gained at an NHSLA panel firm although this is not essential. Defendant experience would be preferred although applications are welcomed from claimant clinical negligence solicitors looking to change direction.

The team advises NHS Resolution, NHS Trusts, Medical Protection Society and medical malpractice insurers of private hospitals and clinics on clinical negligence claims. In addition, the firm advises on health law advice, regulatory matters and represent clients at inquests and judicial reviews and give guidance on clinical risk management. The firm has an established client base comprising major insurers, reinsurers, Lloyd's Syndicates, public bodies and corporates.

Working in a friendly, supportive team with a strong national profile, you'll work on a consistent throughput of challenging clinical negligence cases (relating to high value obstetric, spinal, dental, orthopaedic and misdiagnosis cases amongst others) with the scope to develop your experience. The firm is an employer of choice in the Midlands insurance litigation sector, well-known for the quality of work they undertake as well as being a progressive, merit based firm which is a great place to work.


*Where a level of experience is indicated, this is a guideline only and represents the amount of time we would usually expect a candidate to accumulate the requisite level of experience. This does not preclude applications from candidates with more or less experience.
