  • Top 50 Legal 500 law firm
  • Upper-market salary
  • Work from home 50% of the time
  • Drive forward the family offering in the Midlands

Our client, a true market leader on a national scale, is seeking a Family Solicitor with at least eight years PQE to join its team in Birmingham as a Partner.

This exceptional opportunity is open for both existing Partners and ambitious Senior Associates eager to take the next step in their legal careers.

In this role, you’ll collaborate with colleagues both in Birmingham and nationally and will be entrusted with your own HNW caseload of private family law matters. This is exciting opportunity for you to utilise your existing network of contacts to drive the family team forwards and grow its presence across the West Midlands.

This top 50 national firm has its sights firmly set on growth and reaching the top 30. Along with these ambitions, it remains determined to retain the down-to-earth culture it has managed to continue to cultivate over its rich 200-year history.

While it can be hard to differentiate between the firms at the top, this heavyweight provides its team with an unbeatable combination of upper market pay, lots of progression opportunities and an impressive level of flexibility, while keeping a relaxed and friendly environment.

The firm offers up to three days per week from home, and on your days in the office will help you progress your career even quicker, you’ll be working alongside some of the most successful and prominent lawyers in the field – the talent at this firm absolutely swamps the Legal 500 and Chambers rankings.

Equality and diversity are super important to this firm – and this isn’t something they just say to tick a box, they actually live and breathe it. They recognise that not everyone will take a traditional route into law and provide lots of help and support for those doing CILEX or taking a non-qualified fee earner role to get qualified and move up the ladder. Nobody is treated differently in this respect.

They have just been awarded Top Employers Institute certification for the fifteenth year, with independent judges reporting that they provide “exceptional employee conditions” while “nurtur[ing] and develop[ing] talent throughout all levels of the organisation.”

Their awards cabinet must be truly bursting at the seams, as they are regular winners at regional and national events. Notable trophies they are won recently include those for ‘Best People Initiative’ and as an “Innovation Trailblazer”.
