The role:

The Healthcare team requires an Associate to assist in its practice. The role presents significant opportunities for training, growth, and development in a unique team at the forefront of healthcare litigation which has enjoyed significant success and acts for a wide range of clients (insurers, insureds, regulators, Royal Colleges, defence organisations, PCTs and medical professionals) on the defence side, with insurers and insureds (medical professionals), being the largest contingent.

This is an exciting opportunity to work on behalf of leading insurers handling quality mid- to high-value work and offers the opportunity for development based on performance.

  • Experience of healthcare litigation is essential (defendant clinical negligence claims and healthcare regulatory cases).
  • This role is not suitable for you if you have only claimant experience, or if you have only defendant experience in claims work.
  • Experience of insurance, insurance law and coverage would be beneficial, but is not essential.
  • Empathy and excellent interpersonal skills
  • Strong technical ability to include a thorough grasp of principles, case law and topics.

  • Motivation and a strong work ethic
  • Great team-working skills
