Job Details

We have been approached by a particularly well run and respected regional firm where there is an opportunity for a senior private client solicitor to join the team. Due to the nature of the work our client is looking to bring someone on board with at least 8 years PQE and there is very much the potential to become Head of Private Client.

It is very much hoped that the new recruit will have an eye on future.

The successful private client solicitor will be taking on a full caseload of private client matters including wills, lasting powers of attorney, estate planning, create trusts, IHT planning and some court of protection work. Experience of dealing with high net worth clients is a must, with STEP being a good to have rather than essential.

The hours of work are 9am - 5.30 with flexibility available depending on individual circumstances. Worth noting is that on top on a generous salary there will be a bonus structure in place to allow for significant additional earnings based on billing achieved.

All applications demonstrating the skills necessary to fulfil the role will be considered. Stated PQE and salary levels are for guidance only.

If you are interested in this opportunity, please apply through the advert or contact Tim Batchelor at Thornton Legal directly on 07718 129 375. All applications treated in strictest confidence.

Recent testimonial: I'm very happy to recommend the recruitment service offered by Thornton Legal. I have known Joe for several years and knew Thornton Legal would be the recruitment agency to speak to when I decided on a move back to a Manchester based firm. Working alongside Tim Batchelor, I secured a position as a senior associate in the employment team at DWF, which has proved to be an excellent move. Both Joe and Tim were always knowledgeable and approachable, and I would have no hesitation in recommending them. Employment Senior Associate
