Private Client Solicitor

As roles go this is unusual. Not in a bad way but in way that separates it from other firms looking at this level.

The role operates across two of the firm's offices. Primarily in Manchester where the firm undertakes a broad range of commercial work which instinctively attracts a more high net worth clientele, whether through referrals internally from the corporate team but also from IFA's and Accountancy referrers. 

Secondly, work is generated from a more traditional client base from their office in Derbyshire which tends to make up both general wills work but a steady stream of trusts and probate.

As a result there is a need for someone to be able to work across both offices so on a practical level it is likely to suit someone who sits more in that geographical area.

The role itself will also have the ability to provide strategic input and be instrumental in the investment and growth of the department. 

Whilst there is junior support, the nature of the role does require a certain degree of experience and the ability and confidence to act with autonomy. As such it is anticipated that someone would have upwards of 4 years PQE.

The scope for personal progression is good with a route towards equity partnership for those with the long term commitment and appetite to take on that leadership role.

Again, ideally you will be STEP qualified however the firm and team has a history of supporting those to gain the qualification so it certainly more a nice to have than an a requirement.

If you are an experienced private client solicitor with ambitions to run and grow a team and department then this is a fantastically friendly long standing practice that can provide you with the landscape you require to flourish.

If this role is of interest then please contact Paul Warburton for a confidential discussion or send your CV to us.
