Defendant insurance - Industrial disease solicitor - litigated mix of work
INDUSTRIAL DISEASE SOLICITOR 0-3 PQE - MANCHESTER
Industrial Disease Solicitor - One of our leading defendant insurance practices is currently looking to hire an industrial disease solicitor with litigated defendant experience. The role will also involve handling your own litigated caseload of NIHL files as well as assisting the Partner on other high value cases such as asbestosis / mesothelioma matters. Strong NQs will be considered, but they should be able to demonstrate proven litigated industrial disease experience.
THE ROLE AT A GLANCE
The majority of the work undertaken by industrial disease solicitors within the team is litigated. The successful candidate will be encouraged to build their own caseload of NIHL work. However, the role also offers the opportunity to gain exposure to more complex work including mesothelioma / asbestosis-related work. It also offers the chance to ascend to a supervisory capacity where you would be responsible for a small team of more junior fee earners.
The client is looking for candidates who have ideally cut their teeth in a reputable defendant practice and already have a thorough understanding and appreciation of how to run a litigated caseload. This is a top tier practice that continues to grow and develop in the Manchester market and wishes to attract candidates with ambition to drive the team forward.
SALARY AND BENEFITS
The salary is dependent on experience. Furthermore, the benefits package is commensurate with a top tier firm, with a number of incentives available to the successful candidate.
