Private Client Associate 4+ PQE – Progression opportunity – Hybrid working – Tier 1 Legal 500

Apply now

Our client, a full-service national law firm, is seeking a Private Client Solicitor with at least four years’ PQE to join its Tier 1 Legal 500 private client team in its Leeds office. 

Not only does this role come with a great salary, but the opportunity to develop your career prospects quickly, as you’ll work towards becoming the go-to probate specialist within this national team.  

The firm is also willing to provide an Associate title for anyone currently working at Solicitor-level. 

The right candidate will have experience across the private client spectrum, including tax, trusts and estates, with particularly solid experience in probate law, including lifetime trusts, deeds of variation, powers of attorney and estate administration.  

The firm is committed to further growth and is investing heavily in its private client division to support the strong flow of work coming from the firm’s commercial divisions. 

We think this client is a bit of a gem – because it has all the perks of a national, with the heart of a regional.   

Its commitment to people over profits is demonstrated by the fact that team members stay for an average of six years – which is well above the industry average. If you needed more evidence, look to its roster of accreditations, including Stonewall, Disability Confident and Halo Hair Code.   

In addition to a competitive salary, you’ll get an enhanced annual leave entitlement, plus the opportunity to buy more, an additional two days off per year to take part in charity work, a health cash plan, and access to lots of initiatives to support your physical and mental wellbeing.
