We are a career firm, providing access to long-term career opportunities and an environment built on the premise of being “human first”. Put simply, we care as much about your career as you do. We are featured in The Times’ Best Law Firms 2024 list, and consistently achieve recognition for the quality of our services in both the Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners. We are now 450 people, including 280 lawyers and 58 Partners, with offices across the South-East and London. More about the Serious Injury Team: Our Serious Injury Team, and several key individuals, have received recognition in the Legal 500 and Chamber’s & Partners for the quality of the services they provide. Our team supports clients who have suffered catastrophic and life-changing injuries that were not their fault, guiding them through the claims process and helping them to secure significant settlements. The Team’s approach is holistic, encompassing not only our client’s future financial, care, medical and practical needs, but also ensuring they have the appropriate emotional guidance and support. Our team predominantly handle complex and high-value matters arising from; * Adult brain injuries * Child brain injuries * Complex orthopaedic injuries (including amputations) * Fatal incidents (including inquests) Our Team is focused on achieving the best possible outcomes for clients and their families. To do this, our lawyers and legal support staff work within small teams led by one of the Partners, as opposed to each matter being assigned to an individual fee-earner. This means that our clients benefit from the collective expertise of several members of the team. For our team members, this ensures access to a wide range of work regardless of their level of expertise and offers the opportunity to develop on the job with support from the wider team. Day to Day: Our Senior Legal Assistants play a crucial role in the ongoing management of client matters and are instrumental in helping our lawyers achieve the best possible outcomes for their clients. Working alongside two very experienced and supportive Senior Legal Assistants, you will provide direct support to lawyers across the team, handling a mixture of chargeable and non-chargeable duties, including: * Initial advice and guidance to new clients * Acting as a point of contact and team liaison throughout the course of a matter * File opening and closure (and associated due diligence) * Supporting the credit control process by creating bills and paying invoices * Administrative tasks such as creating bundles, typing from dictation, and collating medical records. This is a fantastic opportunity for a career Legal Assistant who is looking for that “next step” opportunity that entails more responsibility and a greater level of involvement in the day-to-day management of client matters. This would also suit a Senior / Legal Assistant with longer-term ambitions to become a Paralegal or a qualified lawyer. What we look for: Our Firm is built on the value of being “human first” and, because of that, we are looking to attract those who have a passion for delivering excellent standards of client service, and the drive to continuously learn and improve. We are ideally looking for: * A Legal Assistant (or similarly qualified legal support professional) with prior experience working as part of a Personal Injury, Medical Negligence, or Litigation Team. * An individual with prior experience working in the health sector or another type of medical environment would also be of real interest. * Familiarity with time recording and experience with working toward a small fee target would be beneficial, but is not essential. * Engaging, empathetic, and friendly communication style, with the ability to interact confidently with clients (and their families) who are going through an extremely difficult time. * Excellent organisation skills, and a naturally proactive approach to your duties. * A willingness to get “stuck in” and support others across the team when needed. If you feel that you have this experience, and are passionate about advancing your career in our leading Serious Injury Team, then we strongly encourage you to apply. If you would like to learn more about this opportunity, please contact Brandon Duchesne, Talent Acquisition Manager, for an informal conversation
