This is an unmissable opportunity for a Family Solicitor with at least six years’ PQE to join a highly respected, established family law boutique as a Senior Associate or Partner at their brand-new office in Manchester city centre.

The firm has generated significant organic growth in recent years and there is an existing caseload of HNW and UHNW finance cases and complex children matters.

Alongside handling this work, you’ll play a key role as a mentor to junior colleagues, helping them to develop and ultimately, supporting the growth of the team.

Our client is a prestigious boutique practice with several offices across South Manchester and Cheshire, specialising in family law. It is a very well-known name in family law and advises some of the wealthiest families in the region.

This is the next in line of organic expansion for this firm. They have a multi-office presence across the country and their senior leadership team has stayed consistent throughout. As a key player in the national private family law market, the opening of their office in Manchester has successfully solidified their North West presence.

In addition to a fantastic salary (supplemented by the firm’s generous bonus scheme), you’ll also be given the flexibility to work from home for part of your week and a fantastic benefits package, which includes 25 days’ holiday and your birthday off.
