Description

Industrial Disease Solicitor, Leeds

An opportunity has arisen for an industrial disease solicitor or legal executive to join an international law firm in its Leeds office. The role is within the Industrial Disease claims team which is recognised as a top tier department by the Legal 500. The team are currently working with eight of the top ten UK insurers.

The role will involve working to your own annual targets on a case load which will consist of litigated industrial disease claims. These will include Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL), but also a broader profile of asbestos related injuries, Work Related Upper Limb (WRULD), Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS) and claims involving the Control of Hazardous Substance Regulations (COSHH) cases on behalf of insurer clients and self-insured companies.

This is a remarkable opportunity for a self-sufficient and commercially minded individual to join an established and successful team. Based in Leeds, you will be responsible for managing your own case-load with the opportunity to support colleagues in more complex and higher value cases and you will also oversee the work of junior fee earners within the team.

This industrial disease fee earner will:

- Be a solicitor or legal executive
- Have 1 years post-qualification experience in industrial disease
- Have litigation experience

The successful candidate can look forward to joining a supportive and knowledge-sharing team with opportunities to broaden experience into business development.
