Clinical Negligence roles don't come much better or more exciting from a career progression point of view than this !

Our client is one of the UK's leading Defendant Clinical Negligence practices, with a large expert team and often heavily involved in groundbreaking new cases and developments in this area of law. Due to ever-increasing levels of work coming in to the team across the firm's UK offices, they now have this new opportunity for another Assistant Solicitor or Associate level candidate to join the team here in the firm's major Bristol offices.

Day to day you will have the opportunity to handle a challenging caseload of high value Defendant Clinical Negligence work including significant cases on behalf of the NHSLA and the MDU. This will include drafting pleadings, witness statements and letters of response, liaising with the NHSLA and MDU on a regular basis as well as NHS Trusts and other health bodies, conducting face to face negotiations and the mediation of claims as well as preparing counter schedules of damages in high value matters.

You will ideally have at least a couple of years strong, relevant experience, but your drive and passion to develop your career in this area is the key thing, and for example our client will consider candidates coming from a Claimant background for example if you can explain and justify your keenness to move across in to Defendant work at this stage in your career and with the experience and insights you have to date.

There is the opportunity for fantastic long-term career progression within the team, especially here in the firm's Bristol office, and there is a very impressive starting salary and benefits package on offer as well.

For more information about this position, including a review of the full job description if this would be helpful, please contact Matthew Goodwin at Chadwick Nott. All enquiries will be treated in strict confidence.
