We are a medium-sized, single site, full-service law firm based in Reading.
Our Family team is looking to appoint an experienced and ambitious solicitor.
With at least four years’ pqe as a family lawyer you’ll already be familiar with a broad range of matters including matrimonial finance, private law children work and cohabitation disputes. You will be comfortable with, and adept at, advocacy work, ideally including proceedings concerning children. You will have started to build your external reputation and a growing skill-set in practice/business development and be interested in developing this further.
Joining us you’ll be part of a busy, specialist team with an excellent reputation in the Reading area which attracts high-net worth clients and handles complex family disputes. We will support you with plenty of learning and development opportunities including the ability to learn from our two highly regarded family partners. We’ll also expect you to help guide and support the less experienced lawyers in the team. You’ll manage your own busy caseload with minimal supervision and be encouraged to build a strong name for yourself in the Reading/Berkshire area. There is definitely room to build your career over the medium term with us.
As a firm it is always important to us to nurture and support our people and this year we have invested heavily to support remote working. We have also introduced many adjustments to our premises to ensure a safe working environment for those who need/want to be in the office. Over the longer term we are committed to embracing a continued degree of home working and more flexibility in working arrangements to support our people with their changing lifestyles and expectations.
If you are interested in exploring this opportunity with us please apply with your CV and a covering letter/email.
