Marine Litigation Solicitor

Outside of London it is rare to find work of this quality in this very specific area. It is both technical and challenging and invariably requires a real interest in undertaking marine specific work.

The firm is, not unsurprisingly, international and the scope of work extends across the globe.

The Marine team in Manchester is in a unique stage of its growth which also means that this role carries huge scope for the successful candidate. Why? Well it is intended to be client facing and will allow someone to really build their own network and contacts and build their own portfolio of clients that will drive their progression further.

The work itself tends to be claims arising from cargo insurance, contract and shipping contracts as well as some transport liability and yacht work.

The work can be both for Claimants and Defendants so you are guaranteed a very interesting mix.

The team are aware of how difficult it may be (absent someone relocating from London) to find someone with marine specific litigation experience so they are looking for someone at around 2-4 PQE coming from a commercial litigation background, professional negligence, arbitration or commercial insurance background who might be interested in transitioning into this kind of a role.

If you have sound technical commercial litigation or professional indemnity experience then we are interested in hearing from you.

Please contact Paul Warburton for a confidential discussion or send your CV to us for further consideration.
