BLM is an insurance risk and commercial law firm with both a domestic and international focus. We now work with an increasing number of customers, across more lines of business, in more locations throughout the UK and Ireland as well as across the world, than ever before.

We are currently looking to attract a Barrister to join our Healthcare Regulatory team, based in our Manchester or London office.

The department provides advice and representation to healthcare providers and individual healthcare practitioners in inquests, criminal proceedings, employer/contracting body led disciplinary investigations and proceedings brought by regulators (GMC, NMC, GDC, HCPC, GPhC etc). The team is recognised as leaders in the field in the legal directories.

The role itself will involve handling a caseload predominantly made up of inquest cases, but also regulatory and disciplinary proceedings. The successful candidate may be asked to assist other teams around the firm where there is a need for an advocates input. We are keen to secure a Barrister who has recent experience of advising and representing their clients in professional disciplinary and inquest cases.

Experience in criminal proceedings would be an advantage. As the team advises clients across England and Wales, the successful candidate will need to be able to travel and may need to spend time away from home in order to provide representation at meetings and/or hearings.

In return we offer a competitive salary, company benefits and a collaborative environment.
