Clinical Negligence Solicitor

  • Negotiable
  • Leeds, West Yorkshire
  • Permanent

A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a Solicitor specialising in defendant medical negligence work to join an internationally recognised law firm based in Leeds City Centre. This position could also suit a Solicitor working in another area of Personal Injury or Litigation, who is keen to retrain and pursue a career in this fascinating area of law. This is one of the country's leading health care practices and comprehensive training and support is on offer.

This Clinical Negligence Solicitor role will involve handling a variety of high value clinical negligence files. The firm has a market leading presence and a depth of expertise in the health and insurance sectors. The successful candidate will work with a friendly and supportive team and will be handling a challenging but fulfilling caseload of defendant clinical negligence work, acting for a variety of clients including the vast majority of local (and some national) NHS Trusts. You will be drafting legal documents, conducting face to face negotiations and mediation of claims, preparing cases for and adhering to court deadlines.

The successful candidate will be a solicitor with ideally 0 -5 years PQE (those approaching qualification this year will be happily considered), however this is just a guideline and candidates that fall outside of this bracket but still possess the correct knowledge and skills to succeed in this role are encouraged to apply. Candidates must be technically strong and really enjoy getting their teeth stuck into complex cases.

The firm offers lots of scope for hybrid/flexible working, which is backed up by excellent systems. There is also a strong emphasis on the successful candidate's professional development, so progression is on offer and the firm fully supports this through structured learning and development programmes. The opportunity would suit someone who is dedicated to a career within clinical negligence and keen to rise through the ranks.
