Travel Insurance Litigation Solicitor.
 
This respected Exeter firm is recruiting into their established travel, tourism, and insurance team, and searching for a solicitor or legal executive to join this busy team.  
 
You should have between 1-5 years of PQE and in an ideal world, your experience should include advising on travel insurance matters, through litigation, arbitration or alternative dispute resolution.
 
Solicitors at the more junior end of the PQE range without insurance litigation experience, but very good personal injury or other insurance litigation experience from another reputed firm should get in touch. 
 
The work will be broad and include advising on public liability and personal injury matters, as well as wider travel insurance disputes. You will advise on both claimant and defendant work both in the UK and abroad, including giving advice on contractual matters concerning insurance policies. Much of this work will have an international focus, and any language skills you have could be utilised. 
 
Common claims will include skiing & sporting accidents, travel delays, accidents at sea, falling ill on cruise holidays and on an aircraft. These claims can be high value and occasionally catastrophic, and due to the nature of the work, often international jurisdictional matters. 
 
To apply for this role, you will have between 1-5 years of PQE, ideally with some international travel litigation experience.  
 
In this exciting Exeter-based role you will be working alongside respected and established partners in a very friendly team, who will be involved in your training, progression, and development where appropriate.  
 
Excellent salary up to £47,500, with fantastic benefits on offer including 2 bonuses per year, pension, life assurance, and gym membership.
