Solicitor - Catastrophic Injury Team (At least 2 years’ PQE)



Full-time, Permanent

Glasgow

Due to ongoing growth within the business, an opportunity has arisen for a client-focused litigator to join our Catastrophic Injury Team in the Glasgow office.

This post will suit a qualified lawyer who has at least 2 years PQE, strong litigation skills, and some experience in civil litigation. Alternatively, you may have had commercial training/experience and be seeking an opportunity to move to an area of law where you can make a difference to clients and know that you are doing work that really matters.

The successful candidate will have a keen eye for detail, the ability to act on their own initiative and a strong desire to assist others, displaying an empathetic and proactive approach in dealing with clients.

Digby Brown has been one of the success stories of the Scottish legal sector in the past decade – we now operate in seven regional areas across Scotland, having tripled in size in the last nine years.

We are the only firm top ranked by Chambers and Legal 500 for personal injury work, which has been the case now for 15 years running. The Firm has also been voted Scottish Law Firm of the Year in three out of the last six years.

We have developed a reputation as a formidable court firm, focused on quality service for our clients and expertise in our people. We work in a distinctive way – what we do works and makes a difference in people’s lives.

Digby Brown is committed to being an employer of choice, which is evidenced by our competitive salary and benefits package, as well as the opportunities we provide for further development – a total of 14 of our 25 Partners joined us as NQs or Trainees.

To support the quality of service we provide to our clients, and our people’s personal development, we have innovated together and built a brand new, cutting edge, digital client case management system. We have focused on providing modern digital solutions and unique case workflow to our employees and we will continue to adapt this technology in line with our firm values.

In addition, the events of the past year surrounding the Coronavirus pandemic have enabled us to implement a more flexible working approach moving forward, which we are calling Hybrid Working. This will enable our people to split their working time between their homes and the office, on a pre-agreed number of days per week, in line with the needs of their department.

This is a wonderful opportunity to join one of our specialist teams and develop your skills in a very challenging area of PI law.
