Associate (NQ-5PQE), Edinburgh or Glasgow office - Healthcare

We are looking for an Associate (NQ-5 years PQE) to join our team within our Edinburgh or Glasgow office.

The role will involve managing a mixed caseload of healthcare and abuse claims. This is an excellent opportunity to join an expanding team within our multi-award-winning firm. The role can be based in Edinburgh or Glasgow and requires regular communication with clients nationally. We have a collaborative, supportive team working in a modern, flexible environment.

The Team

We are Scotland's leading healthcare team, ranked band 1 in Chambers and Legal 500. We are also the leading Scottish historic abuse practice, at the forefront of the developing law. We act for major indemnifiers and insurers, as well as directly for healthcare professionals, local authorities and charities. The Legal 500 2023 describes the team as 'simply the best'.

Essential Skills & Experience

  • You will be a highly determined individual able to adapt well within a demanding, fast-paced team.
  • You will have experience of personal injury litigation.
  • You will enjoy being challenged by complex legal issues and expanding your knowledge.
  • You will be a confident and effective communicator.
  • You will be focussed on delivering a highly professional service to clients, including compliance with client SLAs and MI requirements.
