Family Associate Solicitor

  • 4-6 PQE
  • Promotion opportunity to move into an Associate role
  • Team will invest in you becoming the “go-to” in the N Yorks market
  • Work from home three days per week
  • Legal 500 team
  • Named as one of the Sunday Times Best Places to Work in 2023

We are partnering exclusively with a highly respected Yorkshire law firm seeking a Private Family Solicitor with roughly 4-6 PQE to join their Harrogate office as an Associate.

This is an unrivalled opportunity for a rising star family lawyer to be positioned as the “go-to” in North Yorkshire, as the firm is going to invest significantly in your career development. The sky is the limit in terms of your progression, with salaried partnership very clearly on the cards in the mid-term.

The firm offers lots of flexibility and you’ll be able to work from home for part of your week.

You’ll have an exclusively private caseload made up of largely HNW financial matters, so this role would be fantastic for someone with a mixed caseload looking to focus entirely on the private market.

The Head of Family is highly experienced and has been with the firm for over 10 years, and they will support you in building your own profile in the market. A significant proportion of your work will come from referrals from other departments, and you’ll have the commercial and private client teams to lean on here.

If you are looking for a fast-tracked path to the top, with the autonomy to manage your cases and clients how you’d like, but with the support of an experienced leader in the family market, this is the opportunity for you.
