  • detailed analysis of quantum and liability evidence including identifying any discrepancies and preparing chronologies.
  • Interviewing witnesses and drafting witness statements.
  • Drafting pleadings and applications.
  • Analysing medical reports and identifying relevant symptoms in order to instruct medical experts accordingly

  • Instructing counsel and attending conferences and JSMs as well as mediations remotely and in person.
  • Attending Court
For those with more experience, you will be taking more of a lead function in your work whilst delegating to less experienced colleagues. You will also have the opportunity to take on more of an operational role in the team.
