Job Details

  • Three days from home 
  • STEP qualification supported 
  • The chance to join a Legal 500 team and routinely handle HNW work 
This is a fantastic opportunity for a private client solicitor to join a well-established, reputable private client team within a friendly law firm in North Yorkshire.  

Our client is open to considering individuals with a range of experience for this role, from newly qualified solicitors or legal executives up to more experienced lawyers, so it’s certainly worth taking a look at if you’re considering making a move. 

You will be able to work from home up to three days per week and handle a range of private client work, with exposure to HNW cases as well as contentious matters. Don’t worry if you haven’t had experience with higher-value estates before, you’ll be supported by more senior team members to get you started.
For the rest of the week, you’ll be based at the firm’s head office in Harrogate, with the option to spend one day in Leeds or York if you wish. 

The department encourages and supports its team members to become STEP-qualified, if this is something they desire to do, so you’ll have the opportunity to progress and further hone your technical and commercial skills. 

You’ll get plenty of support from a well-resourced secretarial and administration team and benefit from a friendly and collegiate firm culture. 

The firm has a fantastic reputation in the market, with an impressive roster of clients spanning all sectors. The firm has carved out a niche for itself in the digital tech space, working with interesting businesses on commercialising and protecting their IP on a global scale – so you’ll work on the private matters of interesting tech businesses as their estates grow.
