Job Details

My clients are looking for an experienced Senior Lawyer to join our team of committed and passionate professionals in our Manchester office.  You will be engaged in challenging and rewarding, high value casework as you represent clients who are victims of clinical negligence.  This will provide a platform for you to showcase your exceptional client care and communication skills, sound judgement, confident decision-making and significant legal knowledge and expertise.

 The opportunity will suit a confident and compassionate Senior Lawyer with a committed background of representing claimants and victims of clinical negligence, matched by a strong track record of running complex cases.  You will be handling claims for clinical negligence, surgical error and complications such as cerebral palsy, injuries caused by mesh implants, misdiagnosis and delayed diagnosis cases, including those involving cancer.  Therefore you will have a natural ability to provide legal services with a personal touch, demonstrating your care, understanding and sensitivity to clients who may have suffered negligence.

The role

 As a Senior Lawyer with at least 8 years PQE, you will run a high value Clinical Neligence Multi-Track caseload which includes complex cases at the highest values, and you will be able to deal with all aspects of running these cases from initial interview to trial.  You will therefore need to have thorough working knowledge and understanding of the issues involved in dealing with Multi-Track cases, such as costs and the litigation process.  The ideal candidate will also play an important role in helping to achieve the team’s objectives.

A key element of the role involves mentoring and supervising other team members and supporting them with Multi-Track and Fast-Track cases, so an enthusiasm for sharing knowledge and expertise to grow talent within the wider team is essential.  In addition to supporting the team, you will also have excellent networking skills, enabling you to nurture and develop relationships with clients and contributing towards business development.

A day in the life of a Senior Lawyer is never the same, however a typical day may include supervising other case handlers, carrying out relevant investigations, obtaining relevant documents, preparing witness statements; preparing and attending Conferences and Court hearings (CCMCs/Trials).


They recognise and reward high performance, with competitive salaries and an extensive benefits package including

  • Structured pay scale
  • Contributory pension scheme
  • Permanent health insurance
  • Life assurance
  • 25 days annual leave (in addition to bank holidays)
  • Employee Assistance Programme
  • Enhanced maternity and paternity pay
  • Cycle to work scheme
  • Organised sports and social club
  • Annual travel and parking loans
  • Financial assistance for professional development
