Thompsons Solicitors are a law firm unlike any other. With nearly 100 years’ experience of successfully representing clients of injury and mistreatment, we have the privilege of working with and supporting the Trade Union Movement and the people they represent.

By providing an inclusive environment, we ensure that individually and collectively we flourish to be the best we can be. We are recognised as one of the UK's leading teams by credible directories including The Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners, as well as being highly recommended in The Times’ Best Law Firms 2019. We pride ourselves on being “the most experienced trade union, claimant and employment rights law firm in the UK”, our friendly working environment and our excellent work/life balance.

The opportunity

We are looking for an experienced Senior Lawyer to join our team of committed and passionate professionals in our Manchester Office. You will be engaged in challenging and rewarding, high value casework, which will include highly-prestigious and interesting personal injury cases. This will provide a platform for you to showcase your exceptional client care and communication skills, sound judgement, confident decision-making and significant legal knowledge and expertise.

The opportunity will suit a confident and compassionate Senior Lawyer with a committed background of running a variety of personal injury claims, matched by a strong record of running complex cases. You will be handling asbestos, industrial disease and accident claims, therefore you will have a natural ability to provide legal services with a personal touch, demonstrating your care, understanding and sensitivity to clients.

The role:

As a Senior Lawyer with at least 8 years PQE, you will run a high value Multi-Track caseload which includes complex cases at the highest values, and you will be able to deal with all aspects of running these cases from initial interview to trial. You will therefore need to have thorough working knowledge and understanding of the issues involved in dealing with personal injury claims. The ideal candidate will also play an important role in helping to achieve the team’s objectives.

A key element of the role involves mentoring and supervising other team members who run Fast-Track value claims and supporting them with cases, so an enthusiasm for sharing knowledge and expertise to grow talent within the wider team is essential. In addition to supporting the team, you will also have excellent networking skills, enabling you to nurture and develop relationships with clients and contributing towards business development.

A day in the life of a Senior Lawyer is never the same, however a typical day may include supervising other case handlers, carrying out relevant investigations, obtaining relevant documents, preparing witness statements; preparing and attending Conferences and Court hearings (CCMCs/Trials).


We recognise and reward high performance, with competitive salaries and an extensive benefits package including:

Structured pay scales
£4,500 car allowance
Contributory pension scheme
Permanent health insurance
Life assurance
25 days annual leave (in addition to bank holidays)
Employee Assistance Programme
Enhanced maternity and paternity pay
Cycle to work scheme
Organised sports and social club
Annual travel and parking loans
Financial assistance for professional development

We believe that attracting talent that reflects the diversity of the communities within which we live and work is a key part of our business, which is why we are an equal opportunities employer.
