Due to a recent departure in the team, the firm are looking for an experienced Duty Solicitor to join and help further develop the firms London presence. This role will be based out of their South London premises.
Your responsibilities as a Duty Solicitor will involve:
  • Management of a busy caseload with a primary focus on advocacy work - Attending police stations and Magistrates' Courts, advising and representing clients
  • Out of hours work (duty rota)
  • Preparing cases of varying levels of severity for trial
This will be a ‘hands-on’ role and will involve spending a lot of time out of the office. The firm are flexible in terms of PQE as long as you hold the duty accreditation.

You will also have the chance to develop a team around you. Knowledge of local courts would be beneficial but is not a pre-requisite for the role.
