We are looking to attract a solicitor to join our Catastrophic Injury defence team in our Southampton office.

The role will focus on assisting the partners with the day to day handling of their complex, high value, multi-track cases and will also include handling your own multi-track injury cases. This will involve litigating some of the largest personal injury claims in the country, working with leading lawyers, top 10 insurers, barristers and experts. This offers an opportunity to be actively involved in the cases, interviewing clients and witnesses, attending conferences, applications and trials, instructing experts and resolving issues.  

We are keen to hear from candidates with a similar background in catastrophic injury or large loss, with a high standard of verbal and numerical reasoning and the ability to analyse, evaluate and communicate information logically is key - together with proficient IT skills. Defendant personal injury experience is preferred but we are happy to accept applications claimant solicitors. We are also interested in anyone with the aptitude, drive and determination to work at the cutting edge of defence litigation with previous experience of handling RTA/EL/PL cases.

In return we offer a competitive salary, company benefits and the opportunity to work and develop in a nurturing and collaborative environment.
