This firm is a highly successful practice and is a key player in the Yorkshire market, with a national and international reputation. The firm places real importance on providing a partner-led service with a hands-on approach and is renowned for being forward-thinking and commercially savvy. They pride themselves on having an innovative approach and commit to investing time and resources into building relationships with clients to understand their goals and achieve them. They also place great store in management and as well as fee earning that will form an important part of this role.

The work itself is varied and includes a caseload of private client matters including wills, trusts, succession planning and the administration of estates for an extensive client base from business owners and high net worth individuals to clients with cross border issues and high value estates.

As this is a more senior role you will also be involved in projects for the wider firm and have additional duties on top of the usual day to day role including business development, team management, learning & development and marketing. Unusually this firm actually value such activities and make allowance for non-chargeable work and responsibilities within individual targets.

Our client is ideally looking for someone who has a minimum of 7 years' PQE and STEP qualification would also be an advantage. You should have strong technical skills and it is essential that you have experience dealing with high-net-worth clients.

We have thirteen experienced consultants focussing on legal recruitment, encompassing the Commercial, General Practice, Public Sector and In House positions, both permanent and locum. In addition two consultants specialise within the Patents and Trademarks sector.

We feel that much of our success has been due to the fact that we:

- try to accurately guage and understand what both candidates and clients require and indeed that which they are able to offer and then bring the two together
