Careers

We are Serious Law LLP. We work exclusively with clients who have serious and catastrophic injuries. Over the last 29 years, we have dealt with some of the UK’s largest and most complex serious injury cases, achieving numerous multi-million pound settlements for our clients.

We are proud of our reputation for excellence, integrity and commitment to achieving the very best outcome for our clients. We are dedicated to helping people rebuild their lives.

We are a Lexcel accredited firm – "People take pride in the quality of service provided to clients, going the extra mile for clients and knowing the difference their work will make to client lives", and a Silver Investor in People – "Partners manage in the modern and approachable style, and people appreciate the flexibility with which they are managed."
