Clients include 'tier 1' insurers and corporates particularly in manufacturing and logistics which often have cases involving serious injury of a specific nature. The successful candidate will handle matters anywhere from £50,000 to approximately £250,000, whilst assisting on the higher-value matters, many of which go to trial.
