Private Client Solicitor 2+PQE – Four days from home – Tier 1 Legal 500 – HNW work

Apply now

A full-service law firm with offices across Yorkshire is seeking a Private Client Solicitor with at least two years’ experience to join its nationally respected team in Leeds.

You’ll enjoy an unrivalled flexibility, as you’ll be able to work from home four days per week – which is unusual for the Yorkshire legal market.

The team is one of largest and most successful private client teams outside of London, specialising in the administration of complex, high value & prestigious estates. The team enjoy a Tier 1 ranking in the Legal 500.

Here, you’ll find a close-knit and collegiate environment where you can have a say on the direction and future of the firm.

The management team does not encourage a long hours’ culture and has purposefully set billing targets at a low level to enable its team members to enjoy a very happy life/work balance.

You’ll handle a caseload of high-value, complex estate planning and administration matters, including estates with significant ownership of agricultural land and business property, and advise a client base of HNW and UHNW individuals on capital tax planning, the use of trusts, asset protection and succession issues.

STEP accreditation would be advantageous but isn’t essential – and the firm will happily support you in gaining such a qualification in the future if you would like to.

The firm also offers an excellent benefits package that includes private medical insurance and a generous holiday entitlement and purchase scheme.
