Family Solicitor/Legal Executive - Senior Appointment

A firmly established and very strong regional practice is now in the next phase of its expansion drive having already successfully increased its headcount and so now wishes to appoint an additional Family Solicitor or Legal Executive in a senior capacity to be based at the firms' office in South West Birmingham in order to compliment the firms' existing Family Team.

With around 150 staff spread across a number of offices throughout the West Midlands, Worcestershire and the Black Country, this award-winning firm is a full-service practice that punches well above its weight and has an enviable client base comprising both individuals and commercial entities.

The firms' highly regarded Family Team is keen to strengthen its offering in the area with the appointment of an experienced Family Solicitor or Legal Executive to service an existing client base. This is a key strategic appointment and the role will come with supervisory and management responsibilities given that you will occupy a team leader position. Not only will you deal with a high calibre caseload of privately funded family matters and have exposure to HNW and technically complex cases, you will also be responsible for a team of six junior family lawyers in a team leader capacity. You will be tasked with providing support and assistance with developing your team whilst acting as a technical referral point and have the opportunity to see your team flourish into well rounded family practitioners. You will ideally be familiar with the local area, be ambitious about furthering your career and you will have already gained experienced at a Legal 500 rated practice, either at a national level or at a niche, boutique practice.

This role really does offer acres of progression and development opportunities, especially as the firm operates a dedicated career development plan which will allow you to attain your career aspirations with the benefit of being mentored by very experienced partners already at the firm. You will be able to really make your mark in the family sector and grow the teams standing in the market by undertaking business development and marketing activities, thus enhancing your reputation as one of the "go to" family practitioners within the locality. In fact, the Family Team here are regularly active in the area and often commentate on developments within the family law sector.

Naturally a competitive salary and benefits package is on offer which includes 23 days' holiday entitlement as well as extra holidays over the Christmas period when the office closes. The firm also prides itself on its non-corporate environment and strives to promote a positive work/life balance which is something many of the larger national practices aren't able to do.

This is the perfect opportunity for an experienced Family Solicitor or Legal Executive to join a modern and dynamic practice where you will be able to progress your career whilst taking advantage of a fluid and non-rigid structure that perhaps larger national practices aren't able to offer. Given the strides forward that the firm has made in the last 12 months, this really is the perfect time to join and develop the Family Team, particularly for those who have one eye on partnership in the medium term, so for more information on this Family Solicitor / Legal Executive role please contact Matt Robinson at QED Legal.
