Focus on high-quality litigation from range of clients of the firm
This is ‘big ticket’ litigation work. Previous experience in this area would be ideal, though the hiring managers are equally considering bright applicants who do not necessarily come from a complex personal injury background, but who want to gain experience in this area.

Ideally, the department is looking for ambitious Associates with, not only the technical ability to add strength to the team, but also the soft skills to build solid relationships built on trust.
A great place to nurture your career and sharpen your skills as a strong technical litigator
The team has grown considerably in size but has an excellent supportive culture. This is a rare chance to undertake, interesting, challenging yet highly rewarding work where you will make a tangible impact.
