Apply now

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

You’ll be able to work from home three days per week, which is highly unusual within 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 mixed caseload of private client work, including probate, estate planning, inheritance tax, setting up trusts and advising trustees, but will have the chance to specialise in one of these areas in the future as your career grows and you progress within the firm. Experience of probate and assisting trustees is essential for the role.  

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