A full-service law firm with a great reputation across South Yorkshire and Derbyshire is looking for a Contentious Probate Solicitor with at least five years PQE to join its successful and growing team as a Senior Associate. 

As well as receiving a top-of-market salary, you’ll be able to work from home four days per week and will have flexibility when it comes to your working hours. While this is a salaried role, there may be the possibility of equity if you progress to Partner in the future. 

The team is highly regarded and award-winning with lawyers at all levels, and covers the full spectrum of inheritance disputes, executor disputes and will validity. 

As well as handling a varied private client caseload, you’ll support younger and less experienced members of the team. You’ll also work closely alongside a Legal 500 Leading Individual and will collaborate with colleagues in the wider wills and probate department. 

You’ll receive a competitive selection of benefits including a range of health and wellbeing perks, travel support and a generous holiday allowance. You’ll also be entitled to one day per year off to undertake charity or volunteer work.
