Family Associate Solicitor 3+ PQE – Progression opportunity – Hybrid – HNW work

Apply now

We’re helping an avant-garde, full-service, Legal 500 law firm based in the heart of Chester to recruit for a Family Solicitor with at least three years’ experience!  

This is the perfect opportunity for progression, as the firm is offering a solicitor the chance to join their matrimonial team at associate level. 

The firm is truly looking to make a splash in the legal market and has recently undergone a full rebrand, which better reflects its non-traditional, fun and disruptive approach to delivering top-class legal services.  

It therefore comes as no surprise that the firm has embraced hybrid working and you’ll be able to work from home for part of the week, spending the rest of your time at the firm’s fresh, fun and collaborative offices in the centre of picturesque Chester. 

The role come with a competitive salary and generous holiday allowance, plus your birthday off. However, the biggest plus-point here is the exposure you’ll have to high-net-worth (HNW) casework.  

You’ll be work directly for a prominent Legal 500 private family partner and handle your own caseload of exclusively private family matters. 

This role offers a truly unique opportunity for the right candidate to take the next step in their family law career, working exclusively on HNW private family law matters, while enjoying a fantastic work/life balance as part of a decidedly different (in a good way!) team. 

The right candidate will have experience of handling private family cases and have advocacy experience.
