This is a fantastic opportunity for a private client solicitor or CILEX with at least two years’ experience to join a fun and switched-on law firm based in Leeds, West Yorkshire. 

In addition to a competitive salary and the ability to progress as the team grows, you will also be able to work from home for part of your week under the firm’s hybrid working policy.  

In the role, you’ll handle a range of private client work, including wills, succession planning, estate administration, trust administration, powers of attorney and court of protection, often for HNW clients.  

The firm has a fantastic reputation not just regionally, but nationally, with an impressive roster of household name clients. The firm has carved out a niche for itself in the retail sector, working with some of the most well-known online and bricks-and-mortar brands.  

The private client team receive lots of cross-referred work from the firm’s commercial divisions, so you’ll have the opportunity to assist in handling the private matters of the HNW and UHNW directors of the firm’s business clients – giving you career-forming experience that will stand you in great stead in the future.  

There is a lovely culture here, with lots of social activities such as BBQs and charity events for those who want to get involved – even an in-house choir! The teams are close-knit and work well with other departments across the firm.  

The firm has a modern brand and its team members have lots of opportunities to build their own profile within their chosen market.
