Private Client Solicitor/Head of Department - Legal 500 - Central London
A rare and exciting opportunity has arisen for a senior solicitor to join and head up the private client team at the central London office of a growing Legal 500 firm.

Due to the retirement of one of the senior members of the team, the firm are looking for a Senior Private Client solicitor to join and head the department. You will be dealing with an existing and varied caseload, covering: wills, probate, LPA's and court of protection matters; as well as contributing to the ongoing development of the department.

To be successful in your application you will possess the following attributes:

  • Extensive experience of private client law including: wills, probate, trusts, estate planning, LPA's and Court of Protection
  • Current member of STEP or already working towards the accreditation

  • Have previously worked in a leadership position or with the potential to move in to a management role
This is an exceptional opportunity for someone looking to taking a step up in their career, a first management role, or perhaps someone who feels their progression opportunities are limited in their current firm. You will be offered the chance to join a firm with a strong reputation and the backing of a highly supportive management team. The firm also promotes a collegiate and friendly working environment, along with having good transport links. Those from London based or leading regional firms will be considered.
With the existing head of department moving quickly towards retirement, the firm are keen to meet suitable Private Client Solicitors as soon as possible.
