Family Partner

  • Rare chance to join as a Partner without the need for a following 
  • Tier 1 Legal 500 firm 
  • Hybrid working 

This is an unmissable opportunity for a Family Solicitor to join a highly respected, established family law boutique as a Partner and help build a brand-new office in Greater Manchester.  

This is an extremely rare opportunity to move into a firm as a Family Partner without the need to have a portable following. The firm has generated significant organic growth in recent years and there is an existing caseload of work.  

The firm welcomes interest from existing Family Partners, or experienced family lawyers at Senior Associate level looking for a step up. 
This is unlikely to be a role that suits someone who wants to just bill – but if progression and making your own mark is important to you, this will be it. 

Our client is a prestigious boutique practice with several offices across South Manchester and Cheshire, specialising in family law. It is a very well-known name in family law and advises some of the wealthiest families in the region. 

This is the next in line of organic expansion for this firm. They have a multi office presence across the country and their senior leadership team has stayed consistent throughout. As a key player in the national private family law market, they want to solidify their North West presence with a new office and build a team around the right partner. 

You’ll advise solely on complex private family matters, including divorce, finance and private children matters (some with elements of international law) to a client base of HNW and UHNW families.  

In addition to a fantastic salary, you’ll also be given the flexibility to work from home for part of your week and a fantastic benefits package, which includes 25 days’ holiday and your birthday off. 

This unique opportunity won’t be on the market for very long, so do not delay registering your interest with Realm Recruit.
