Competitive Salary + Benefits

Do you have extensive post-qualification experience, preferably in insurance and/or professional indemnity? Can you help to take a fast-growing Commercial Insurance Team to the next level?

About the role:

Playing a central role within our busy and rapidly expanding Commercial Insurance Team, you will work with some of our highest profile clients from day one. We enjoy numerous long-term, exclusive relationships and you will be the public face of the firm as you progress a diverse and stretching caseload. We provide commercial advice on a wide range of issues to insurers, MGAs, loss adjusters and large corporates, and our commercial insurance expertise spans damage, construction and engineering matters, product liability disputes, product indemnity disputes and subrogated recoveries, so you may be certain that you will enjoy constant variety and have considerable impact. In particular, you could find yourself at the heart of some complex professional indemnity claims and cases within the director and officer arena, including high-profile inquests and criminal defence work.

About you:

A qualified solicitor with extensive commercial experience, you will almost certainly bring a strong track record in insurance and/or professional indemnity. You will definitely be a decisive leader, who can pick up a complicated caseload and run with it whilst mentoring colleagues, building on client relationships and actively developing our commercial insurance practice.
