Forming part of a friendly and well-structured team, you will enjoy managing a caseload of high value and complex probates and estate planning for high net worth individuals.   

This opportunity provides an excellent career path to an ambitious and technically strong, private client lawyer, who wants to play a key and pivotal role. Ideally, you will be STEP qualified or committed to achieving this accreditation.

All applications and enquiries will be treated in the strictest of confidence.
