This is a unique opportunity for a contentious probate solicitor to join a highly respected law firm recognised as a Top 200 UK Law Firm, and a ‘Top Tier’ ranking by The Legal 500.

This vital role will see you managing high-value and complex probate cases, and acting for claimants and defendants in claims and validity challenges. You will also be involved in business development activities and establishing strong client relationships. It’s an opportunity to work within a large team of renowned experts and grow your career in a truly supportive environment.
