Job Details

Law firm in Bristol which is well-regarded for the work it does in Clinical Negligence law is seeking to recruit two Defendant Clinical Negligence lawyers – one of 0 to 2 years’ PQE and the other of 3 or more years’ PQE. The team handles a challenging but fulfilling caseload of defendant clinical negligence work- acting for a variety of clients, which may include work for NHS Resolution, NHS Trusts, MDU, independent providers, and medical malpractice insurers.

The successful candidates will undertake a challenging caseload of defendant clinical negligence work on behalf of NHS Resolution (with appropriate levels of Partner supervision, depending on your PQE). This will include drafting pleadings, witness statements and letters of response, conducting face to face negotiations and mediation of claims as well as preparing counter schedules. You will act as first and primary contact for clients on a day-to-day basis providing them with commercially focused legal advice whilst adhering closely to client protocol and process. You will also assist the team with business development and networking activities. Qualified applicants will have experience in defendant or claimant clinical negligence, or defendant insurance law. Experience gained within an NHS Resolution panel firm would be of interest (but not essential) as would an understanding of the NHS. If you are newly-qualified you will have undertaken a seat in Personal Injury or Clinical Negligence (Defendant or Claimant).


Farrar Levin Legal Recruitment specialises in the recruitment of qualified lawyers from NQ to Partner level. In addition to finding lawyers new opportunities in the England & Wales jurisdiction we also recruit lawyers into offshore jurisdictions such as the Channel Islands and Caribbean/ Bermuda.

At FLLR we seek to provide a bespoke recruitment service which suits the purposes and needs of each individual candidate. Our aim is to source/ generate opportunities appropriate to your specialist legal discipline or assist you in moving across to an alternative legal discipline which you have identified as preferable to your current specialist area.

If you are an organisation looking to recruit a lawyer (or lawyers), we can assist you by trying to source candidates for your recruitment needs. In addition to working on specific vacancies, we may (from time to time) send details of candidates who possess specialist legal skills/ knowledge relevant to you and therefore could be potentially of interest. In some cases, these candidates may even have the potential to add value to your current client portfolio by possessing a following (ie. client contacts who offer immediate fee-earning opportunities).
