Solicitor (Serious Injury Team)

Solicitor — Serious Injury Team
Full-time/Permanent
GLASGOW/EDINBURGH

Digby Brown has been one of the success stories of the Scottish legal sector of the past decade – we now operate in seven regional areas across Scotland, having tripled in size in the last 11 years.

We are top ranked by the two global legal watchdogs (Chambers & Partners and The Legal 500) for personal injury work. Chambers & Partners has awarded us Band 1 for 18 years while The Legal 500 has ranked Digby Brown as a Tier 1 firm for 14 years, of which we have held on our own for nine years.

Digby Brown has also been voted Scottish Law Firm of the Year in three out of the last six years and our Serious Injury Team was recognised as Litigation Team of the Year at the 2021 Scottish Legal Awards and Catastrophic Injury Team of the Year at the 2020 UK Personal Injury Awards. Additionally, the firm as a whole has repeatedly earned multiple awards for its charitable efforts and retained its Platinum accreditation as a leading employer by Investors in People (IiP) for three successive terms.

We have a reputation as a formidable firm for two reasons: the expertise and bar-raising results of our people, as well as the way they tenaciously investigate and litigate civil actions, and the quality of service delivered to our clients, as evidenced in our legal rankings, awards, and public feedback platforms. Digby Brown works in a distinctive way but what we do works and truly makes a difference to people’s lives – and that is why what we do matters.

We innovate continuously across Digby Brown to support the quality of service we provide to our clients, and our people’s personal development. To that end, we have been operating from a brand-new digital case management platform for over 18 months now. This lends itself well to fast-paced technology change, where it sits at the heart of what we stand for. Working closely together, we have solicitors and technology staff co-designing and delivering industry leading innovation on a regular basis. As a result, the underlying technology we have carefully nurtured provides the best available tools to our solicitors to support them to deliver industry leading client services.

Due to ongoing growth, we have an exciting opportunity has arisen for a client-focused individual to join the firm as a Solicitor in our Glasgow/Edinburgh office.

Ideally, we are looking for someone with strong client focused litigation skills. You need a keen eye for detail, the ability to act on your own initiative and a strong desire to help others, displaying an empathetic and proactive approach in dealing with clients. We want a team player - someone who can manage their own case holding, whilst supporting others in the team with more complex cases.

The successful candidate will have at least one-year PQE, strong litigation skills and some experience in civil litigation. Alternatively, you may have had commercial training/experience and be seeking to move into an area of law where you can make a difference to clients and know that you are doing work that really matters.

This is a rare and exciting opportunity to work in a supportive and stimulating environment, providing a high-quality service to pursuers of personal injury claims nationwide.
