This provides a great opportunity for the successful candidate to learn and develop business development skills whilst also undertaking more typical paralegal responsibilities.

The contentious insurance team is a market leading practice with high quality work. The right candidate will have the opportunity to become involved in supporting fee earners in the team with legal research and other substantive tasks on client matters.
