Contentious Probate Senior Associate
I am currently working exclusively on an opportunity with a legal 500 ranked dispute resolution team in Surrey, who have a rare opportunity for an experienced and ambitious contentious trusts and estates associate to join the team, acting as the department's primary contact for complex and high value contentious probate matters.
The firm are highly ranked in the legal 500 and the Chambers directories across all practice areas and have a reputation as a leading law firm in London and Surrey. They focus on providing a highly consultative service to a wide range of high net worth and high profile clients including national business owners, professional sportspeople and celebrities.
This position is into the firms highly ranked dispute resolution team, but will involve working closely with the tier one ranked and well recognised private wealth offering.
The firm are ideally seeking an experienced Associate or Senior Associate, currently working within a well recognised city of London, West End or top regional team with long-run ambitions towards partnership within a leading legal 500 ranked team. Candidates with upwards of five years' experience within a well established team and a commercial outlook are encouraged to apply and the firm are also open to considering candidates at Partner level.
The role itself will involve taking over the existing caseload of a retiring senior lawyer and looking to grow this area of the business, acting as the key point of contact within the department for contentious probate matters, and supported by a number of other senior litigators, each with their own specialism.
This is an opportunity to take over an existing workload with one of the leading dispute resolution teams in the South East, performing city quality work in Surrey. There are clear prospects for progression to partnership within a firm that values high performers who display a commercial awareness and offers a highly supportive environment for fee earners to realise their potential.
The position is Surrey based, and easily commutable from large areas of Sussex, Kent, Berkshire and both South and West London.
The firm are offering a highly competitive salary and benefits package with that rivals many of the top international practices in the city of London.
