We are looking for a talented Barrister or Solicitor-Advocate from either a chambers/employed bar background or civil litigation background to join our advocacy team.
A large part of the role will involve fast track trials. You will be expected to represent claimants at trials around England and Wales and to undertake representation of the firm’s clients at CMCs/CCMCs, Interim Hearings, IAHs, Stage 3 portal Hearings and other forms of advocacy in claimant PI litigation. Although the majority of the work will be on fast track cases there are opportunities to be involved in multi-track litigation.
You must be able to work independently and to a high standard, prioritising workloads and have fantastic attention to detail. You will be provided with instructions in a similar way to external counsel. This role will give you the chance to work with a successfully established and growing company with Solicitor owner-managers. You will be part of the advocacy team, reporting to the Head of Advocacy, and joining them as the firm’s second in-house barrister.
• Extensive travel across England and Wales that might require overnight stays.
• Good IT skills including all Microsoft Office and knowledge of Case Management Systems.
