Our client, a prestigious family law boutique in Manchester famed for its high-calibre managing partner, is seeking a Private Family Solicitor with between four and seven years PQE to join them as a Senior Associate.

This established practice prides itself on a supportive and collaborative culture, providing premium legal services to high-net-worth clients.
