  • 5+ PQE
  • Rare opportunity to take a supported step up into a leadership role
  • Hybrid working of 50%
  • Christmas closure

A leading law firm is recruiting for a Court of Protection specialist with 5+ PQE to join its team in Merseyside and take a supported step up into a Head of Court of Protection role.

This role is unmissable in terms of the immediate and longer-term progression available, plus its flexibility.

You’ll be able to enjoy a hybrid working package of 50%.

You will manage the caseload of a small team of Court of Protection specialists, plus a reduced caseload of work yourself (which is great if you would like to take a step up into a leadership role without stepping away from fee-earning completely).

Experience of private client work would be advantageous, but not essential.

The firm is well-established, financially stable and growing. It is recognised as one of the UK’s leading teams by the Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners, as well as being highly recommended in The Times’ Best Law Firms 2023.
