Senior Private Client Solicitor / Head of Department.
 
A rare and exciting opportunity has arisen for a senior private client solicitor to join the central London office of a reputable Legal 500 firm.
 
The firm has been established for almost 90 years and is extremely well regarded, ranking highly for several different practice areas. The firm has a number of offices, but this role will be within their branch based just outside the City of London.
 
Due to the upcoming retirement of one of the senior members of the team, the firm are looking for a senior private client solicitor to join and head the department. You will be asked to deal with an existing varied caseload, covering: wills, probate, LPA's and court of protection matters; as well as contributing to the ongoing development of the department. There is support in place and excellent development prospects, with the department expected to grow within a short period of time.
 
To be successful in your application you will possess the following attributes:
  • 5 years' PQE+
  • Extensive experience of private client law including: wills, probate, trusts, estate planning, LPA's and Court of Protection
  • Current member of STEP or already working towards the accreditation
  • Self-driven, capable of marketing yourself and generating new business
  • Previous leadership experience or the potential to act in a management role
This is an exceptional opportunity for someone looking to taking a step up in their career, a first management role, or perhaps someone who feels their progression opportunities are limited in their current firm. You will be offered the chance to join a firm with a strong reputation and the backing of a highly supportive management team. The firm also promotes a collegiate and friendly working environment, along with having good transport links. Those from London based or leading regional firms will be considered.
 
With the existing head of department moving quickly towards retirement, the firm are keen to meet suitable Private Client Solicitors as soon as possible.
 
To be considered please apply now or contact Tom Stafford at G2 Legal today on 0207 649 9298 for further information.
