Contentious Trusts and Probate Lawyer Job NQ-2 PQE

Your new firm
This national law firm provide a wide range of legal services to corporate clients, organisations and individuals. Having enjoyed significant growth in recent years, they are continuing to grow and have a rare opportunity for an NQ-2 PQE solicitor to join their Litigation team in either Bristol or Taunton. The firm have an excellent reputation for work/life balance as well as high-quality work and this is a very rare opportunity for a junior solicitor in the market - the range and quality of the caseload makes it an exceptional base to build a career in litigation.

Your new role
As a Solicitor in this motivated but highly collegiate team you will enjoy a wide variety of dispute resolution work. The team acts for businesses, landed estates, farms and private clients in relation to a wide range of contentious matters with a particular focus on agriculture, property, and contentious probate and other private client matters. The team also regularly acts in commercial and regulatory matters as well as more esoteric areas of law when the need arises. You will have your own caseload across this range of work and will enjoy the opportunity to support Partners and Associates on more complex and large-scale claims. As you develop, if you wish to specialise more in one area, the firm will look to support that, but equally you could retain the broader spread if you prefer. Beyond your caseload, you will get involved in a range of business development activities and play a full part as a member of a supportive team.

About you
You will be looking to develop your career as a litigator and will display excellent client skills and ideally a strong academic record. Preferably you will have contentious trusts and probate experience however you do not need to have specific agricultural, regulatory or contentious probate experience throughout your period of recognised training, as they will train and develop your specialist expertise, however if applying at the NQ level you will have had a minimum of 6 months during your training contract in a solid litigation seat and any relevant experience particularly in private client litigation will be an advantage. You may even have built several years of litigation experience and be looking for a new challenge, either as a solicitor or at the bar.

What's in it for you
This is an excellent opportunity to join a stellar firm who will develop you as your progress in your career. For further information please contact Harriet Chapman at Hays Legal.
