About us:

Admiral’s success goes hand-in-hand with having a strong people-focused culture. We believe that happy people make happy customers and happy customers help increase profits. Our philosophy is a simple yet effective one: people who enjoy what they do, do it better.

Admiral Law was created in 2013 and are co-owned by both Admiral Group and Lyons Davidson Limited.   We provide legal assistance for all Admiral Group customers and ensure they are given great service. Taking the burden and stress of an accident away from a client is at the forefront of Admiral Law’s mind, whilst ensuring employees give correct and effective legal advice to obtain fair compensation for their losses.

About your career:

Our employees are right at the heart of our success. We put a lot of effort and investment into making sure our organisation is a happy place to work, ensuring employees have the appropriate training to excel in their field of expertise. We have had a plethora of experts deliver training ranging from barristers, physiotherapists, accountants, costs experts, medical experts, and not to forget our own experienced management group.

The management group work closely with individual handlers investing in their career and ensuring they have the support and guidance to achieve set goals. This emphasis has led to what we love seeing, people enjoying the job, advancing their technical knowledge and understanding what pathway they wish to choose in the business. Internal progression is paramount.

We offer a great opportunity for those interested in furthering their legal career. We currently have a significant number of handlers in Admiral Law enrolled on CILEx courses, so working with the local college and our employees is extremely important to us. All of these courses have been fully funded by Admiral Law, yet another perk for those successful!

About the role:

We focus on delivering a high standard of care to our client’s ensuring they obtain a fair outcome of their claim. The role involves dealing with Fast Track claims where liability and/or quantum is disputed necessitating the need for the claim to be litigated and handling the claim from issuing proceedings to settlement/Trial.   As a Litigation handler, you’ll be expected to deliver an exceptional level of service to everyone you speak to.  No one claim is the same, the role offers a variety of complex matters that will engage your mind in problem-solving, creativity and devising a set of best outcomes for the client.
