Our client is an international law firm with offices around the world and over 140 partners and more than 750 other fee-earners. They are Chambers and Partners and L500 rated for professional indemnity work.
The Bristol team have had one of their busiest years-to-date and this is showing no signs of slowing down. They are now looking to recruit a mid level lawyer to join their professional indemnity team. You should have gained experience with a larger regional or city firm and have experience of defendant professional indemnity work. Experience of dealing with complex and high-value litigation work is essential. The team deal with a wide range of claims including claims against construction professionals, solicitors, architects, surveyors and engineers or within the financial services sector.
The team is still small enough to enable you to handle a range of work but large enough for you to develop an area of specialism if this is the direction you want your career to take. There is the option to work with partners from other offices and also to take on work in other areas if this is something you want to do. There is also the opportunity to handle international work if this appeals too. Unlike many firms you will be encouraged to meet your clients in person and to play an active role in marketing and business development.
You will need to be bright, a good communicator and enjoy working as part of a team.
Great salary and benefits on offer and the firm are open to considering flexible working (4 days per week).
