Lead a new Contentious Probate team within a friendly and dynamic Legal 500 practice

Are you a partner seeking a more forward thinking or more profitable practice or an associate/legal director looking for a chance to really make your mark and achieve partner title? If you are a contentious probate specialist with a proven track record, seeking a new opportunity at a more prestigious firm, then I would like to hear from you.

My client seeks an experienced senior lawyer to spearhead a new contentious probate offering within the Leeds office. Legal 500 and Chambers rated, the firm has attracted a number of impressive senior lawyers over recent years and is looking to expand its service offering by making this key strategic appointment.

Established within the contentious probate market, you may be ACTAPS or STEP qualified. You will be focused on delivering the best possible client service and will be interested in growing your practice with the support of a dedicated marketing team. Experience of supervising more junior member of staff would be ideal, but support will be given for any lawyer looking to grow into a management role.

If you are a self-motivated individual who would relish the challenge of establishing and growing your own team, becoming a partner within a successful commercial practice, this could be the opportunity for you. On offer is a generous remuneration package (bespoke to experience) offering a wide range of benefits. Both full time and 4 day per week lawyers will be of interest.

To learn more, please send your CV to Adele Callaghan or email me to arrange a call to discuss the role.
