Solicitor - Commercial Insurance


Competitive Salary + Benefits

Are you a qualified solicitor who thrives on complex, challenging commercial insurance cases? Do you have what it takes to strengthen an industry-leading team within a top international law firm?

About the role:

Joining our high-profile Commercial Insurance Team at a time of rapid growth, you will build on our long-term, exclusive client relationships to take the business from strength to strength. Operating alongside some of the most respected experts in the industry, you will provide well-judged commercial advice on a broad range of matters to insurers, MGAs, loss adjusters and large corporates, potentially spanning damage, construction and engineering matters, product liability disputes, policy indemnity disputes and subrogated recoveries. You could also find yourself involved in complex professional indemnity claims, inquests and criminal defence briefs, so every day will bring new and exciting challenges.

About you:

With a strong academic background, you will be an ambitious qualified solicitor and will ideally join us from a similar commercial insurance and/or professional indemnity environment. You will certainly be a true self-starter and team player who can guide and mentor junior colleagues, and you will be ready to go the extra mile to meet clients’ needs and advance your career with the firm.

About us:

We are DWF: changing the business of law by making legal services a more powerful enabler of client success. We create value by doing things differently, understanding our clients in depth and delivering outstanding experiences for our people. You will join a 3100-strong team in 27 locations across the globe. You will also join a firm that’s been rated among the top employers for working families and among the top two law firms for employee satisfaction – and you can look forward to a career that could take you anywhere within our network.

What you’ll get in return:

Prove you have what it takes and you can expect a competitive salary plus a comprehensive package including 25 days’ holiday, pension scheme, medical insurance, life assurance and a range of flexible benefits such as season ticket loans, a holiday buy/sell scheme, gym membership, health assessments, cycle to work scheme, retail vouchers and dining cards. At the same time, we are happy to discuss flexible working patterns in order to fit in with your other commitments.
