Senior Family Solicitor 10+ PQE – Four days from home – Fast-track progression to leadership

Apply now

Are you looking to secure a senior leadership position within a successful law firm, while maintaining a great work/life balance and working from home for four days per week?

We are excited to bring to the market this unrivalled opportunity to join a successful family law boutique, supporting its vision to become the leading firm for private matrimonial law in the country.

Established in 2011, the firm has quickly expanded into the bustling legal hubs of Leeds, London and Manchester, attracting several names from national family law teams. The team enjoys a fantastic Legal 500 ranking, sitting alongside several much larger national firms.

The firm has huge national expansion plans in place for 2023 and is looking for talented lawyers with around 10 years’ experience seeking a clear pathway to the top while maintaining a flexible working arrangement.

You’ll have a strong background in private family matters, especially divorces and finance. You may already be working in a leadership position, but find you often get frustrated with red tape, long and boring processes, and a management team that is slow to change and adapt – if you are looking for a faster-paced, more dynamic way of working, you’ll find this firm thoroughly refreshing.

Our client has embraced a modern way of working, with all the latest technological advancements to keep any administration and compliance tasks required to an absolute minimum, leaving its lawyers to do what they do best – provide high quality legal advice to a growing client base of HNW individuals.

You’ll be supported by a team of paralegals and junior solicitors, who assist on complex cases.

You’ll be encouraged to be hands-on with clients, maintaining a fantastic client experience from start to finish. As the majority of the firm’s growing caseload is generated via inbound enquiries, there will be no expectation to network or take part in business development activities.

The firm has a strong marketing team, which will support you in growing your personal brand presence, and is investing heavily in its brand and website in 2023 to support further growth.

You’ll be rewarded generously for your individual performance, with an attractive bonus scheme and clear plan to promotion.
