  • 5+ PQE 
  • Exclusively HNW private family caseload 
  • Hybrid working 
  • Uncapped progression as second-in-command 
  • Time within working hours to train and gain new skills 

A progressive Legal 500 law firm is looking for its next rising star Family Solicitor to join its team in Chester at Associate or Senior Associate level.  

You could already be working at Associate level or may be a Solicitor looking for the next step. 
You’ll learn from the very best in the business, working directly for a Legal 500 listed private family partner, gaining exposure to HNW clients and complex family work. The best bit is that you’ll be second-in-command and therefore enjoy unhindered progression routes.  

You’ll join a small but mighty team of three solicitors and have the support of paralegals and an admin team. 

You’ll have the opportunity to grow your profile whilst assisting on complex cases and handling your own caseload of exclusively private family matters – so this is a great opportunity for anyone who has a mixed family caseload right now but would like to move into an exclusively private family role. 

The firm is truly looking to make a splash in the legal market and has recently undergone a full rebrand, which better reflects its non-traditional, fun and disruptive approach to delivering top-class legal services.  

It therefore comes as no surprise that the firm has embraced hybrid working and you’ll be able to work from home for part of the week, spending the rest of your time at the firm’s fresh, fun and collaborative offices in the centre of picturesque Chester. 

The role come with a competitive salary and super generous holiday allowance, plus your birthday off. You’ll have access to regular training and Power Hours to boost your personal or business skills – plus lower targets to accommodate for this – as well as alternative progression routes if you would like to focus on advisory or business development as your career progresses.
