Senior Associate in Wimbledon, Greater London
Hard working and great staff
A typical day is arrival at the office at 08.30 and departure at 17.30 with a short break for lunch. I enjoy my role as a PI litigator. I have the skills and social acumen to keep my clients happy.
I have learned that attention to detail pays dividends as does systematic and consistent file management. It improves billing and quality of service. Management is important to monitor and share information and case issues and to keep staff motivated and retained.
The work ethic is strong but we recognise the need to relax together as well and to take time out from the regular day to day work issues.
The hardest part of the job is generating new leads and new business.
The most enjoyable is taking on a new case and identifying the issues to be resolved.
No progression opportunites
Poor salary, no training stucture, poor management structure
