  • Work exclusively on private family law matters
  • Unrivalled progression opportunity – help build the private family arm of a successful family law boutique
  • Attractive benefits package

A highly regarded family law specialist is looking for a Family Solicitor to join its team in Liverpool. You’ll help take the team to the next level, becoming the most sought-after family practice in the North West.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a family solicitor to join a firm and focus exclusively on private family matters. You may have a mixed/legal aid background, but now want to specialise solely in private family law – which is likely to enhance your earning potential over the length of your career.

This is a rare progression opportunity, as you’ll be one of the first on the ground in the private family law arm of the department and, over time, make it your own and develop it into a top-tier team.

The team currently consists of two directors, five lawyers, four trainees and a well-resourced support team – so it is already sizeable. You’ll learn from highly experienced family lawyers and get lots of support on your caseload.

The firm offers a fantastic benefits package to supplement your earnings and enhance your wellbeing, including enhanced annual leave plus our birthday off, an attractive bonus scheme, enhanced pension, health cover plus wellness service, learning and development fund and discounted NCP parking.
