With offices around the world and over 1,000 employees, its culture and ethos allows for a global reach, with a local touch.
You will be working within the Casualty Team, where you will pursue settlement of files in line with client instructions and guidelines. You will create an initial case strategy and review all available information, undertaking discussions and negotiations with insureds, insurers and third party solicitors, in order to pursue rapid and appropriate settlements. In addition, you will ensure timely and accurate maintenance of all case management, billing and MI systems, to ensure completeness of records and aid business decision making. This is a 'hands on’ and fast-paced environment, where you will be encouraged to speak with clients via the telephone to progress each file efficiently.
