Our highly regarded Divorce, Family and Civil Partnerships team is looking for an additional junior level solicitor for a caseload supporting primarily high net worth clients.
You will be handling a range of divorce and co-habitation disputes including financial remedy applications and the care of children, managing your own cases as well as assisting more experienced lawyers.
You will benefit from supervision and support from some of the area’s best family lawyers and gain experience on complex and challenging claims. You’ll also be supported with plenty of training and good administrative support. It’s an opportunity that offers an exceptional opportunity to develop your career as a family specialist on high quality work while being part of a supportive and welcoming firm.
You will be a solicitor either already qualified or approaching qualification having already gained at least 6 months’ experience in a dedicated family team. You will be able to draft pleadings, briefs and correspondence, prepare Forms E etc on straightforward family disputes and manage a caseload and client expectations which can, at times, be very demanding.
While this role will generally be able to be performed remotely as a temporary adjustment during the current pandemic restrictions, there may be occasions when some office attendance or court appearance is required. Once covid restrictions are lifted there will be the option to work from home up to two days per week, although for very recently qualified solicitors you will be encouraged to attend the office to ensure you receive the best training, supervision and development.
Please ensure that your application includes a detailed CV and a covering letter/message explaining your suitability for the role and your availability to start.
