A top 150 national law firm is recruiting for a Private Client Solicitor with 4+ PQE to join their team in Birmingham.

The opportunity comes with the chance to work alongside other private client specialists considered to amongst the best in their field. As the private client team is relatively new in Birmingham, as one of the early hires, you’ll play a key role in its development.

In this role, you’ll be able to spend two days each week at home and will benefit from a collaborative and down-to-earth working environment. If progression is a priority for you, you’ll also have fantastic development opportunities and clear routes to partnership.

You may be STEP-qualified (or keen to become so) and you’ll be used to handling complex, high-net-worth matters. Your day-to-day caseload will involve wealth planning, wills and probate and inter-generational business planning, on behalf of business owners and other wealthy individuals.

You’ll also get involved in business development activity to help raise the profile of the department across Birmingham and the West Midlands.

The firm has been recognised in the Legal 500 Green Guide for its sustainability and work with clients in the agricultural and biodiversity sectors, so this is a fantastic place to work if environmental issues are important to you.

You’ll also receive a fantastic salary and benefits package including medical insurance, income protection, an electric car scheme and 33 days annual leave (not including bank holidays).
