Job Details

Defendant EL/PL Solicitor 2-5PQE - Leeds

A new opportunity has arisen within the Leeds office of a Top 50 law firm - our client is looking for an experienced EL/PL Solicitor to join its expanding team.

Our client's legal team advises insurers, national government bodies, local government and large self-insured clients on the full range of employers' and public liability issues and has an extensive track record in EL and PL claims litigation. The role will involve handling a breadth of EL and PL matters across a broad spectrum of market sectors. The case load will be varied and of a high standard.

As a firm with new momentum in the Yorkshire region you will work under supervision from an experienced partner and so the quality of supervision and support you will receive will be excellent. You'll assist on larger complex cases and also have your own caseload to manage which is appropriate for your level of experience.

You will be someone who is keen to take an active role in both team and firm wide professional and business development initiatives. The ideal candidate will come from a strong EL / PL background and have a good track record of developing strong client relationships and a true sense of working in partnership with other members of a collegiate team. Both experienced legal executives and solicitors are of interest.

In return, our client offers a clear focus on employee development, making it a fantastic opportunity for a 2-5PQE EL/PL Solicitor with a desire to further their career in a big firm setting.

Brooke Thornham Consulting advertisements use PQE levels purely as a guide to the level of experience required for the role and this does not prohibit applications from candidates who are able to demonstrate the necessary skills and experience. We aim to respond to enquiries as soon as possible but if we have not contacted you within 5 days then unfortunately on this occasion your application has not quite met the requirements of our client closely enough.


Brooke Thornham Consulting is a legal recruitment business established in April 2018 as a partial continuation of a previous brand which had enjoyed a successful 10 years of trading from 2007 and built a stellar reputation. With offices in Leeds, we specialise in the recruitment of Solicitors from Newly Qualified through to Partner level, and our focus is on the commercial market.

We are well networked with clients in the north of England where we serve an enviable client list encompassing Top 20 national brands and also regional practices and boutique firms. Our trade mark is our pragmatism, and trying to offer value at every opportunity.

We believe that when you give more, you get more. That’s why we’re generous with our time and expertise, and why we go out of our way to understand you, share our knowledge and add something extra – every time you work with us.

We’re experts in our field – and we get results. But over time, we develop something even more important: the intuitive understanding that really special relationships are built on.
