A new opportunity has been created for a Solicitor to join this specialist Shipping & Marine team based in Aberdeen for a 12 month FTC.
The team are open-minded as to the level of experience required from Solicitor through to Associate level, they are also opening to discussing p-time or flexible working arrangements.
There will be a mix of both contentious and non-contentious work on offer, variety is a key attraction of the role. This role is a sectoral one, so you will have the opportunity not only to work for leading marine insurer clients and for vessel owners, operators and others in the industry in handling personal injury, regulatory issues and other claims and litigation, but also to work with the team and others in the firm for owners, charterers, shipbuilders, banks, ports and others in transactional work such as new building, sale and purchase and chartering. This will develop and grow your understanding of the breadth of the sector. You will have exposure to a very wide variety of clients in the sector, many of them operating internationally, so although the role is based in Scotland it has a much broader reach. Experience of handling arbitrations and disputes outwith Scotland would be beneficial although not essential.
To be considered you will ideally have experience in one of the following areas:
- Dealing with high-value personal injury claims, including disease
- Acting for insurers
- Experience of commercial claims and disputes
- Some experience of transactional work and drafting, and a willingness to develop this
