Job Details

This well-established Top 50 firm has exciting plans to grow throughout 2021 and a long term vision of becoming a leading National and International firm. You will find that the practice has been built around their employees, which has given them a remarkably high employee retention rate. You will receive a high level of investment in your development, and a work/life balance that doesn't come at the detriment of your progression.

The Firm:

This firm is multi-award winning and has received numerous accolades in national press in recent years. They have gone from strength to strength throughout 2020 and have ambitious plans to build on this in the coming years. This ambition is shared across the firm, and everyone from Managing Partner to support staff have a clear vision for the future and know what is required to get there. In addition to building on the organic growth they have achieved in the UK, they have plans to expand on to the international stage as their client base becomes increasingly global. This means that the opportunity to progress and grow with the firm is genuinely unlimited.

The firm has a long and deep-rooted history, dating as far back as the 18th Century. Whilst this means that they have an impressive roster of loyal clients, their fresh, modern and cutting-edge approach mean they are continually attracting new, and more prominent clients too. They have established themselves as the 'go-to' firm across several sectors, with a particular focus on insurance, commerce, and the health and care industry. You will find a range of clients, from OMBs and start-ups to multinationals and the public sector, making for a diverse and exciting caseload.

The reason for the firm's rapid growth over the past five years comes down to the talented individuals, that are a mix of homegrown, up and coming lawyers and strategic hires that have seen them enter a trajectory that is the envy of their competitors. This means that you can expect to be surrounded by some of the UK's most technically strong lawyers, whilst having the opportunity to progress your career in line with the firm's growth.

As with all modern businesses, the firm embraces agile working. You can split your time between the home and office, which has resulted in a sharp increase in productivity since being implemented. With significant investment in technology, wherever you are, you will be connected with your colleagues and will be able to communicate and collaborate effectively.

The Role:

The firm is seeking a Family Partner to join their flourishing Family team in their Manchester head office.

The Family department has grown significantly in recent years, and you can expect to work alongside a highly skilled team headed up by heavy-hitting Partners. You will work closely with the Partners in the department on a strategic level, having a voice and influence over key decisions that are made.

The work that the team undertake includes solely privately funded divorces, finance, and children. You will be representing HNW individuals with assets and interests in the UK and internationally.

In addition to the work/life balance you will have at the firm, they also offer a highly competitive remuneration package. The firm has exciting plans to grow in the coming years, and it is therefore an excellent time to join the team as they embark on this journey.
