Private Client Solicitor

Fed up with the pressures and expectations of working for a large commercial law firm? Working in a small firm with no opportunity to progress?

Sydney Mitchell offers a friendly and flexible environment where lawyers can develop their client base and skill set in an organisation that fosters a team approach with a high level of support. As Birmingham Law Society Law Firm of the Year 6 out of the last 10 years we work hard to make the firm a success and look after our most valuable asset – our staff.

We have an opportunity at our Shirley Office, for a Private Client Fee Earner with a minimum of 5 years post qualification experience, reporting to the Head of Department.  More senior candidates will be considered and candidates with contacts or clients to bring will be given priority but this is not essential.

The role:

To  handle private client work including complex wills, trusts and probates coming into Shirley office. This is the substantial part of the role as the firm has many existing contacts and clients generating work for this desk. In addition:

  • To generate new clients
  • To generate new work from existing client case, including cross selling or private client work by other departments and to reciprocate where possible.
  • To identify and secure new and existing sources of work for the firm from intermediaries, brokers or businesses operating in the professional sector e.g. banks, accountants, IFA's etc.

More junior candidates with steady relevant wills and probate experience who are keen to develop in this area into trusts and dealing with high net worth issues may be considered for training as will more senior candidates interested in working in a flexible and friendly environment.

Our ethos is to provide great client service at all times. Many of our clients are very longstanding and much of our work comes from existing clients and recommendations. We have a strong network of professional contacts that regularly send us work.

  • Competitive and flexible remuneration package
