An opportunity has arisen for a Duty Solicitor to join a long-standing and well-reputed criminal defence specialist.

The firm have been established for almost 30 years and are known as one of the leading firms across South London/Kent. They handle a wide variety of cases ranging from general and serious crime matters such as murder, drug trafficking and terrorism; through to financial and business crime cases including fraud, money laundering and regulatory offences.

Due to the firm's reputation, they are seeing an ever increasing amount of work coming to the firm, including an increasing amount of private instructions. As a result they are looking for an accredited Duty Solicitor to join the team in their South London office.

Your role as a Duty Solicitor will involve:
  • Management of a busy caseload with a particular focus on advocacy at police stations and Magistrates' Courts
  • Duty rota work
  • Case preparation for more complex files
This role will involve spending a lot of time out of the office and you will be given a lot of autonomy in running your caseload. The firm are taking a flexible approach through this recruitment cycle and are happy to consider candidates at varying stages of their career. The key attribute needed is the duty accreditation.

This will be a good opportunity for you if you are a committed Duty Solicitor; keen to work in a leading criminal defence specialist. Knowledge of local courts would be advantageous but is not a pre-requisite for the role. 

The firm are looking to meet suitable candidates as soon as possible, so to be considered please apply now. For further information, contact Tom Stafford at G2 Legal - 0207 649 9298.
