Law Costs Administrator - Costs Team - London

Location: London

Salary: from £ 25,988 to £ 30,213

 

The Costs Department sees a range of cases, from straightforward Personal Injury cases to complex actions in the High Court and even higher. The field of legal costs litigation is a growing specialism in its own right and often requires analysis of intricate legal arguments. You will join a growing team, providing support to assist with the recovery of legal costs for the firm.

The successful candidate will undertake administration duties including the preparation of legal documents such as court claim forms, assisting with cash collection and processing payments and bills. The role will involve providing administrative support to fee earners within the department, and liaising with defendant insurers and solicitors. The ideal candidate will be able to prioritise, have good IT work processing skills, be an excellent communicator and be numerate. You must have an eye for detail and possess the ability to be organised and methodical whilst working under pressure. Above all the ability to work as part of a busy team is essential. Legal experience is not essential as full training will be given.

If you are looking for a new challenge and a promising career please get in touch.

If you are interested in applying please send your application to Joanne Prime at Thompsons Solicitors, Congress House, Great Russell Street, London, WC1B 3LW. Alternatively email Joanne Prime at joanneprime@thompsons.law.co.uk.

Assistant Law Costs Draftsperson - Costs Team - London

Location: London

Salary: from £ 30,213 to £ 35,001

 

The Costs Department sees a range of cases, from straightforward Personal Injury cases to complex actions in the High Court and even higher. The field of legal costs litigation is a growing specialism in its own right and often requires analysis of intricate legal arguments. It is also an area where one can eventually qualify via the ACL (Association of Costs Lawyers). Qualified Costs Lawyers have rights of audience in legal costs cases, a standing parallel to solicitors and legal executives.

The successful candidate will conduct law costs drafting, largely in personal injury legal costs. This involves not only quantifying the legal costs but also formally justifying the conduct of the case and resulting costs incurred, to both your opponent and ultimately to a civil court or to the Senior Court Costs Office.

You will possess some understanding of the basic mechanics behind the English legal system, tort law, conducting financial transactions and client care. This knowledge may have been gained through either practical work experience or having completed a legal or business degree. You will be able to work as part of a team and be accustomed to using IT software applications. You must have an eye for detail and be capable of prioritising work and making important decisions quickly. You should possess excellent interpersonal skills and have empathy with the trade union movement.

You will join a growing team drafting bills of costs, quantifying budgets and negotiating the legal costs in some cases. Preferably the job holder will have experience within a legal costs company or a solicitor’s office but this is not essential as full training is provided on an ongoing basis.

If you are looking for a new challenge and a promising career please get in touch.

If you are interested in applying please send your application to Joanne Prime at Thompsons Solicitors, Congress House, Great Russell Street, London, WC1B 3LW. Alternatively email Joanne Prime at joanneprime@thompsons.law.co.uk.
