Job Description

Our market leading Medical Negligence Team has an exciting new opportunity based within Edinburgh.

 

Working in one of Scotland’s leading teams (top ranked by both Chambers UK and the Legal 500), the successful candidate will have some prior experience litigating personal injury cases. Whilst direct medical negligence experience would be advantageous, it is not essential. Acting exclusively for pursuers, this is a challenging but extremely rewarding position. You will receive first-class training and supervision from our accredited specialist solicitors. We offer flexible working and a friendly environment designed to encourage teamwork.

 

The position will involve work at all stages (pre-litigation and raised action) and in a variety of courts. The nature of our work means that we primarily litigate in the Court of Session, but we also represent clients at Sheriff Court level. We place a real emphasis on the quality of our work, and you will be involved in some of the highest value and most complex clinical negligence cases in Scotland.

 

This is a rare opportunity to develop your knowledge within a very specialised area of the law and with genuine further career prospects. Each of our solicitors have their own caseload comprising claims at all levels from lower value Sheriff Court cases to seven figure complex claims. We assist clients suffering from the most serious and catastrophic levels of damage such as brain injury, spinal injury, visual impairment and fatal injuries.

 

The role requires a strong team player who is confident, approachable and has excellent communication and client care skills. We offer an attractive salary and benefits package.
