Senior Private Client Solicitor or equivalent

Location: Manchester
Experience: 5-7 Years, 8 Years +
Specialism: Private Client, In-House
Date Posted: June 25, 2021
Job ID: 2416
Employment Type: Permanent
This is an interesting opportunity for an experienced Private Client Solicitor or Chartered Legal Executive to move away from a traditional private practice role and into an innovative practice as part of a large company with a market-leading private client legal team. 

This company offers a fantastic work environment and career development options, and this particular opportunity could be suitable for people trying to get different things from their job - maybe for parents who are looking for a better work/life balance for instance, and a step away from the pressures of more traditional fee earning and business development. 

Alongside a competitive salary of up to circa £65,000 plus an excellent pension and great bonus scheme, this position is offered on a remote basis - the company had a flexible working arrangement before and has moved further in recent times - you can be based anywhere that you feel comfortable with, as long as you are able to get to one or more of their regional offices on occasion (and probably more often in your first year with them). Regional offices are in Sheffield, West Midlands, Manchester and Bristol. If you'd rather work more often in one of the offices - this is fine too of course! 

You will need to have strong experience as a private client solicitor or equivalent (Fellow of CILEx, TEP, CTA) and be confident in your ability to deal with high net worth clients. You will have experience in the likes of wills, probate, tax and estate planning, and trusts, and be able to deal  with highly complex affairs (e.g. IHT and estate planning). 

As one of the company's lead private client legal experts, you will provide great advice to your clients, and support other more junior members of the team. There is no need to find or bring your own work - there is plenty to go at! The most important things here are team working and providing great service for clients. 

Please contact Adam Zdravkovic at Think Legal for details about this slightly different option for private client solicitors to work on a remote basis.
