Family Solicitor - Legal 500/Chambers recommended firm - East London

A position within a medium sized, Legal 500/Chambers recommended practice has arisen for an experienced Family Solicitor.

This firm have been established for more than 120 years, with several offices across East London and Essex. Now as one of the most well recognised firms across the region, they have reached an exciting stage in their development and are opening another brand new East London branch in the next few months.  

As a result an exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced Family Solicitor to join their growing team. Those being recruited at this stage are being viewed as future leaders within the firm and this is an excellent time to join should you be looking for long-term progression opportunities. In this role you will be asked to handle a full caseload of private family matters, including: divorce, financial remedies, domestic violence, adoption, pre and post nuptial agreements and children matters.

To be successful in your application you will possess the following attributes:
  • Qualified Solicitor with at least 3-5 years' PQE (a Legal Executive will also be considered)
  • Used to handling a full caseload of privately funded cases. Experience in public matters would be advantageous
  • A self-starter able to hit the ground running and pick up a caseload with minimal supervision 
This is a great career opportunity for a Family Solicitor looking to taking a step up in their career, or perhaps someone who feels their progression opportunities are limited in their current firm. 

In return you will receive a competitive remuneration package (DOE), the chance to work in a supportive working environment and genuine progression prospects, with the firm preferring to promote internally. The firm also promotes a collegiate and friendly working environment, along with having good transport links. Those from London based or regional firms will be considered.
