Due to expansion we are recruiting for a Private Client Lawyer to join the department which currently comprises of 10 lawyers and seven support staff across our six offices. Everyone works in a cohesive environment but with the autonomy to run and develop their caseload and build client relationships. Many lawyers within the team are STEP members but everyone shares their expertise, knowledge and experience to support one another.

Our approach to business and our clients has put us ahead of our competitors. We have core values that define who we are, how we operate and the services we offer. Our success is down to our people and the strong relationship they have built with our clients.

There is plenty of opportunity to grow and develop the work and you will be encouraged and given the independence to build relationships with other departments and external referrers.
