Private Client Lawyer

Freeman Harris is a small friendly firm of entrepreneurial Solicitors based just east of the City of London. Over the last year we have started a Private Client department and now need somebody to manage the department and build upon the start we have made. It is an opportunity for the right person to shape their own department. You will be assisted by a trainee and have full administrative support. You will work closely with our Marketing Manager using online and offline marketing to grow the department.

It will suit somebody with an entrepreneurial flair, an ability to use their own initiative, with a highly developed commercial awareness.

The successful candidate will;

  • Have a good knowledge of UK Will and Trust Law;
  • Have a broad base of private client work skills including drafting Wills, Trusts, and Powers of Attorneys.
  • Be able to deal with Probate matters and the Administration of Estates.
  • Be able to deal with contested estates.
  • Have a strong interest in marketing and business development;
  • Be a good communicator and be willing to give presentations to outside organisations;

A working knowledge of family law would be an advantage but is in no way a necessity. Candidates with their own following would also have an advantage.

Please send CVs to ian@freemanharris.co.uk with salary expectations. We are a small but growing firm and salary will be a mix of basic and results based. There is the opportunity to become a Director for the right candidate.
