TYPE OF MATTERS UNDERTAKEN BY THE TEAM
Property Liability is a vast and often complex area of commercial litigation. It deals with instances where clients have suffered sometimes significant financial loss due to an incident, sometimes involving a serious accident or catastrophic malfunction of equipment.
Examples of such incidents might include a dangerous chemical leak from a factory or a serious break down of plant machinery resulting in massive damage and losses for the client. Cases might also involve an international element with cross-jurisdictional challenges adding an extra level of complexity.
The clients advised by the team range from national companies to global PLCs who demand an elite service and rapid solutions to often major challenges.

The team is looking for natural litigators who are bright and hard working and who wish to progress within one of the best teams in the industry. You will receive excellent training and the chance to gain experience with some of the leaders in their field.
