Personal Injury Paralegal

An opportunity has arisen for a personal injury paralegal to join the catastrophic injury team to assist senior solicitors.

The position is to start in January 2023.

This is an excellent opportunity to work as part of a highly respected team. The role includes liaising with some of the country’s leading medical experts and counsel, as well as speaking to clients and their families, so a professional, sensitive and personable approach is required. Assisting on all aspects of catastrophic injury litigation, the role can be challenging at times, but also affords an excellent opportunity to develop a range of skills and contacts essential for anyone wanting to progress in this area of law or more generally in high court litigation.

The ideal candidate will be bright, articulate and enthusiastic about pursuing a career in catastrophic personal injury litigation. They must have a positive, compassionate attitude towards individuals with disabilities, and a genuine desire to help better the lives of people with injuries of the utmost severity.

Previous experience of assisting a catastrophic injury solicitor/partner on their cases is preferable but not essential. A good degree mark (a solid 2:1 or above, but not necessarily a law degree, is required). It is not a requirement to have completed the LPC, but candidates ultimately seeking a training contract with Osbornes are encouraged to apply, as are those looking to pursue a different route to qualification as a solicitor.

There are currently 37 members of the department, including six partners, who work out of the firm’s Camden office. The department is ranked as one of London’s leading personal injury teams, specialising in catastrophic injury claims.

We offer a competitive salary dependent on experience.

If you would like to apply for this position please send your CV and a covering letter to sandra.hillard@osborneslaw.com before 18 November 2022.
