  • Qualified solicitor or CILEX 5+ PQE 
  • Work for Legal 500 recommended head of team  
  • Hybrid working plus flexitime, where you can start late or bank time to take as leave 
  • HNW Guide ranked 
  • Best Companies to Work For list 
  • Main task is to manage files and client – no obligation to supervise juniors or do BD 

A smaller national law firm on the Best Companies to Work For list is recruiting for a Private Client Lawyer (qualified or CILEX) with 5+ PQE to join its team at Associate or Senior Associate level, and help the team take advantage of the substantial pool of work available to it.  

You’ll be able to join the team in either Shropshire or Herefordshire and enjoy hybrid working and a flexi-time policy that will enable you to start later in the day or bank time to be taken as leave.   

This is a fantastic opportunity to further develop your skills and experience, as you will work alongside and learn from the Head of Private Client, a highly experienced Legal 500 recommended lawyer, within a HNW Guide top-ranked team.  

People tend to stay at this well-loved firm due to the level of development and progression they get. No wonder, then, that it finds itself on the Best Companies to Work For list consistently.  

You’ll be able to progress up the ladder quickly, as the team is relatively junior at the moment. The Head of Private Client is looking for someone to come in and hit the ground running on files and client relationships, without the need to supervise juniors or take part in BD (unless you want to).  

In the role, you’ll manage a varied stream of cases across all areas of private client for a mix of local and HNW clients, including wills, inheritance tax planning, trusts, probate and powers of attorney. 

You’ll receive a fantastic salary and benefits package, including a healthcare plan, subsidised new laptop and phone, and enhanced annual leave with the ability to buy and sell days.
