EL & PL (Insurance Litigation) - Manchester
Bespoke and Delegated Authority instructions with a market leading team based in Manchester.
A superb opportunity for a technically strong and ambitious solicitor, who enjoys managing a diverse EL and PL caseload. The quality of work is excellent as the team manages delegated authority work comprising complex Employers Liability, Public and Occupiers’ Liability. Instructions consist of higher level fast track and multi-track cases, where liability and causation are often in dispute.
The nature of the role requires not less than 3 years PQE (or equivalent) in handling a defendant based (EL & PL cases) litigated caseload. This opportunity is an excellent career move away from repetitive, process driven or volume work.
Instructed by major insurance companies, corporate clients and self-insureds, you will enjoy plenty of client contact. The team’s success is built on the excellent and bespoke service it provides coupled with the strong rapport it has developed with established clients and contacts. It is important that you share the same values and approach to client care looking to build a strong reputation as a trusted and commercially astute advisor.
You will be working closely with a partner, who is well profiled as a leading expert in his field. This cohesive and friendly team is well humoured and supportive of each other providing a rewarding environment in which to work.
Investing in the latest technology and resources, this Legal 100 firm is recognised for its excellent ongoing training and career development.
