SALARY: £50 - 70,000 DOE

THE ROLE:
This leading firm has a vacancy for a Contested Probate Lawyer to join their specialist Court of Protection and Inheritance Disputes team in Essex. You will join a niche and highly regarded team that provides specialist advice and guides their clients through wills, trust and inheritance disputes as well as disputes arising in the Court of Protection. In recent years the team has dealt with high profile cases which have been widely reported in both the legal and popular press. The team also deals with non-contested applications to the Court of Protection. You will have the opportunity to work alongside an experienced Partner, Senior Associate, Solicitor and a Paralegal and this is an ideal opportunity to help build the team. You will advise on all aspects of disputes concerning the validity of wills, claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975, trust disputes, claims against executors and attorneys and contentious cases in the Court of Protection. The team’s work often also involves advising on the beneficial interest in property. The role will involve marketing and business development.

THE CANDIDATE:
The firm is looking for a Solicitor/Legal Executive with at least 3 years’ PQE or equivalent to join their highly driven team. You will have proven experience in the field of contested trust and probate work and preferably hold full ACTAPS membership. Candidates with general litigation or private client experience would be welcome to apply for this position but you must have a genuine desire to specialise in contested trust and probate work. You will have the ability to deliver succinct high quality advice, excellent client and team communication skills, drafting and negotiation skills and a desire to play a key role in the future development of the team.

THE FIRM:
This is a full time position. There may be some working from home, if desired, in line with the firm’s WFH guidelines. The firm is a modern thinking, Legal 500 law firm and this is an ideal opportunity to join a successful and thriving practice. The firm invests in their people and offers genuine career progression for the right candidate.
