My client, a highly successful alternative business structure, is looking for a senior family solicitor to run the family department.
My client, a firm which offers a generous benefits package and which is proving to be highly influential in the current market, is offering a very competitive salary and a productive working environment.
The role of Head of Family will involve working to bring in new business to the department, as well as managing the current sources of work and client relationships that have already been cultivated. You will manage the progress of a team of solicitors and fee earners as well as the several legal assistants and paralegals who support the team.
The role will also involve handling a case load, and the work consists of privately funded family files which includes some high net worth work.
The ideal candidate for the role will have a consistent background working with reputable firms and solid academics. You will have strong experience handling a variety of privately funded family files including high net worth work, and management experience will be extremely beneficial for your application. Ideally you will be able to construct a business plan to demonstrate how you will aim to bring in new business to the firm, and be confident in your ability to network and foster client relationships.
This is an absolutely fantastic management position, well suited to a senior solicitor or associate who is keen to step up into a Head of Department role.
