Court of Protection Lawyer

2 + years PQE


Our client is known as a leading full service firm in the Thames Valley and is regularly ranked amongst the best in the UK. They are now looking to expand their highly regarded Court of Protection team.

They seek a COP Solicitor or an experienced Legal Executive who has a genuine interest in Court of Protection work and ideally already with experience in this area.

Exceptional client relationship skills and the ability to understand the range and type of client so as to identify needs is essential.

Experience of a Clinical Negligence/catastrophic claims environment would be an advantage but common sense and a practical approach is more beneficial.

Working alongside leaders in their field you will be working on high value deputyships and private trust work, preparing all types of applications to the COP including statutory Wills, assisting in the purchase of properties and adapting them for the needs of the client, controlling and monitoring clients' budgets, liaising with case managers and other professionals, supervising tax affairs and accounts, attending trustee meetings, taking notes and assisting with the preparation of trustee resolutions and drafting personal injury trusts.

If you are keen to join a friendly team which has a genuine empathy for their clients and where there are superb prospects for promotion then this is the perfect role for you.

For further information about this and other roles in the South East please contact Penny Heighway at Chadwick Nott
