Are you a Court of Protection Solicitor looking to work in a firm recognised as a specialist in this area? Do you want to make that next, defining step in your career? If so, this role at a Legal-500 firm in Durham could be the one for you!

With a superb reputation, this is a fantastic opportunity not only to join a friendly, modern and award-winning firm, but also to work within a nationally recognised specialist practice and learn from a team of dedicated and driven individuals.

The firm is expanding and as a result the team is very busy, meaning you can hit the ground running with a caseload of complex matters from a national client base. These matters could include brain and birth injury, deprivation of liberty, deputy-ship applications and more.

Due to the nature of the role, there will be plenty of client contact, meaning the opportunity would suit someone who is committed to client care and has both excellent interpersonal skills and the emotional intelligence and empathy necessary for such a role.

It is anticipated that the successful applicant will be minimum 3 years' PQE within COP or community care, however this is given purely as a guideline, and candidates with less experience are also encouraged to apply so long as they can confidently handle a caseload under minimal supervision.

So if you are looking to take that next step and handle some complex, high-value work within a Legal 500 firm, why not apply?
