We are looking for a full time specialist Private Client lawyer with experience to join our Private Client team. The successful candidate must have at least three years of good quality private client experience running their own caseload, which must include Wills, LPAs and Administration of Estates. This is a permanent role although to begin with, is a maternity leave cover.
We would prefer you to be working towards or have achieved your STEP qualification and you must either be a Chartered Legal Executive or qualified Solicitor.
The work will be purely Private Client rather than Court of Protection, though many families we work for have a family member with a disability and so experience in this area would be advantageous. The team also deals with the estates of deceased former Court of Protection clients and so experience in this area would be useful. Experience of trusts work would be helpful but is not essential.
Work will include daily contact with clients, their families and carers; you will give advice on a wide range of practical and legal issues and run a caseload of your own files, particularly Wills and Administration of Estates. You will supervise a paralegal and the team is supported by a dedicated P. A.
As part of a niche Court of Protection firm, the team has had a fantastic 2019, winning regional and national firm of the year awards at the National Wills and Probate Awards in October 2019, being Highly Commended for Excellence in Private Client in the Law Society Excellence Awards along with Hugh Jones’ STEP lifetime achievement award.
We need everyone in the firm to have a caring but professional approach – high standards of personal service to our clients are essential.
Benefits will include:
Salary: Competitive but will depend on qualifications and experience.
Closing date: 20th January 2020
