This is a unique opportunity to work in an innovative, niche legal firm that specialises exclusively in acting for clients who have suffered a TBI.  The firm is founded on a unique strategy that focuses on rehabilitation, care and support together with developing collaborative working practices with the healthcare and third sector. Our Mission is to be the most progressive specialists in brain injury who genuinely work to get the best care and outcomes for our clients.

We are seeking additional Serious Injury Lawyers to join our growing team.

The Role

For the right candidate, an opportunity exists for their career to develop and progress along with the firm to gain experience in high-value and complex TBI cases.  One of the central strategies of the firm is for each lawyer to have very low caseloads and the expectation of excellence. Opportunities are also available for a role with a mixed serious injury TBI and clinical negligence caseload. Future career opportunities will also continue to be available, dependent upon the candidate’s goals and aspirations.

Future opportunities to develop in the firm as it continues to grow.

The Person

We focus on very low caseloads and supporting the whole family together with developing relationships in the healthcare and third sector.  You will obviously be well organised and show initiative and attention to detail, but you really do need to have the compassion to help those who have been affected by brain injury and an enthusiasm to learn and to make a difference to clients and their families’ lives.
