Real mix of work spanning RTA, EL/PL and Fraud

Our client is a respected defendant personal injury firm and an established player in the insurance litigation market, acting for a raft of household name insurance companies as well as self-insured companies.

The work undertaken by the various personal injury departments ranges from fast track RTA to complex multi track EL/PL and other areas such as Fraud.

Due to the growth of the Costs team a role has arisen for a Costs Negotiator with sound experience of costs budgeting to pick up an existing costs caseload.

Claimant as well as defendant experience considered

The role is best suited to a Costs Negotiator who is used to handling a variety of work. They should also ideally come from a defendant personal injury background.
