PI Solicitor/Legal Executive Multi-Track Work & Lucrative Bonus
Personal Injury Solicitor / Legal Executive - Multi-Track Work & Lucrative Bonus
A leading regional practice is currently expanding its personal injury department and so is keen to appoint either a solicitor or legal executive (full or part qualified) to join its unique claimant personal injury team and be based at the firms' flagship office in Coventry.
This is a rare opportunity for an ambitious, enthusiastic and commercially astute personal injury fee earner to join a personal injury team that is very different from its competitors. In this role, you will need to be pro-active in properly investigating Fast Track cases to facilitate their transition to the Multi-Track. This opportunity differs from so many other personal injury roles as the emphasis is very much not on high volume and settling a defined number of cases per month but to maximise damages by having the time to properly investigating claims and ensuring that clients are properly compensated.
You do not necessarily have to have Multi-Track experience as you will benefit from both weekly and monthly file surgeries and will also be trained by senior staff in relation to high level quantum and Multi-Track procedure.
You will ideally have a minimum of 3 years' experience of dealing with pre-litigated and litigated claimant personal injury cases in either or both RTA and EL/PL matters. Whilst it would be advantageous if you already have experience of Multi-Track personal injury cases this is by no means essential. What is crucial is that you have the desire to move into high value personal injury cases and will be hungry to be trained into this. You will be well versed in dealing with liability, quantum and causation and you will be proficient in drafting a variety of Court documents. In addition, you will have a strong billing history and excellent client care skills.
In return you will be paid a very competitive salary and an extensive benefits package. You will have the luxury of secretarial support and will be able to earn bonuses of up to 25% as well as undertake extensive client home visits so this is not just a desk based role.
This firm puts its staff at the heart of everything it does and you will enjoy a relaxed atmosphere that is a world away from a traditional law firm so this is the perfect opportunity for someone to move away from a high volume and compartmentalised personal injury firm and gain exposure to more complex and technically challenging matters.
