Careers

We are Serious Law LLP. We work exclusively with clients who have serious and catastrophic injuries. Over the last 30 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.

Serious Law is recommended in the Top Tier of the Legal 500 – "The team is a shining example of how difficult cases ought to be managed", and we are the firm of choice for many other legal professionals who recognise our depth of expertise in catastrophic cases. 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."

As we expand all our departments and grow our Cambridge office resources, we are looking to recruit a number of quality people. We have cutting edge technology and modern, spacious offices with our own parking. Salary packages will be set to match the experience and aspirations of the selected candidates. A lack of extensive personal injury experience will not be a bar for exceptional candidates, for some of our roles.

  • A degree (1st class or minimum 2:1 qualification) / sound educational achievement for non-lawyer roles.
  • Be a confident, influential and persuasive communicator.
  • Good organisational skills.
