Why join Simpson Millar’s Industrial Disease Litigation Department?
Our Industrial Disease Litigation department is staffed by highly accredited employees and has a 5-Star Trustpilot rating. Our staff continually receive fantastic reviews from the clients they assist and are leaders in their field. We’re currently looking to add a 2-5 year PQE Solicitor to join the team in Bristol.
Whilst it would be advantageous to have experience within Asbestos & Mesothelioma cases, training will be provided to the right person. There’s an existing caseload to manage and a strong referral network within the local area.
What the role will involve?
· Taking instructions from clients and offering sound legal advice taking into account their own particular circumstances
· Managing an existing caseload of disease claims and hit financial billing targets
· Attending support groups and legal drop-ins as required in order to maintain existing relations with the firm's clients
· Assist and help develop new relationships with third parties
· Some supervision and development of junior colleagues
What sort of person are we looking for?
This role requires someone who realises that the clients you are working with are in a difficult time of their life, often this is an end of life situation. So, there’s a need to be empathetic, kind and caring. Often being engaged on the litigation matter will lead to the client requiring further legal advice in areas such as Pensions & Benefits or Wills, so having an understanding of when this is suitable, and when a specialist colleague can practically assist.
