LITIGATION PARALEGAL - PROPERTY DAMAGE AND LIABILITY - MANCHESTER

Litigation Paralegal - This is an entry-level role working within the property damage and liability team in the Manchester city centre office of this major global law firm. Previous experience would be an advantage, but it should be made clear this is not a pre-requisite. Our client is looking for bright candidates with a genuine interest in litigation to join and build with the team at a very exciting time in its development.

AT A GLANCE
  • Job title: Paralegal
  • Location: Manchester
  • Salary: £15,000 - £18,000
  • Reports to: Partner
  • Previous Experience: Candidates should have excellent academics (at least a 2.1 from a respected university) and a real interest in pursuing a career in litigation. Previous litigation experience or of working for a law firm would be useful, but is certainly not a requirement for the role.

NATURE OF THE WORK

Property Liability is a vast and often complex area of commercial litigation. It deals with instances where clients have suffered sometimes significant financial loss due to an incident, sometimes involving a serious accident or catastrophic malfunction of equipment.

Examples of such incidents might include a dangerous chemical leak from a factory or a serious break down of plant machinery resulting in massive damage and losses for the client. Cases might also involve an international element with cross-jurisdictional challenges adding an extra level of complexity.

The clients advised by the team range from national companies to global PLCs who demand an elite service and rapid solutions to often major challenges.

THE CANDIDATE

Strong academics are crucial coupled with a genuine passion for litigation. Any previous litigation (especially commercial litigation) experience would be useful, though this is not absolutely necessary by any means.

The team is looking for natural litigators who are bright and hard working and who wish to progress within one of the best teams in the industry. You will receive excellent training and the chance to gain experience with some of the leaders in their field.
