Are you an accredited Duty Solicitor considering a move to a new firm? Are you seeking a role in a firm that focus on criminal defence law?

An opportunity has arisen to join a long-standing and well-reputed criminal defence specialist with 3 London offices. They handle a wide variety of cases 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 their strong reputation, there is an ever increasing amount of work coming to the firm. As a result they are looking for an accredited Duty Solicitor to join the team in their Bromley 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 with their recruitment and are happy to consider candidates with varying levels of PQE. The key attribute needed is the duty accreditation.

If you are a committed Duty Solicitor, keen to work in a firm with the chance to progress and a focus on criminal defence law, this is the role for you. A following of clients would be particularly beneficial and knowledge of local courts would also be advantageous. However, it is not a pre-requisite for the role.

The firm are looking to make a swift appointment, so to be considered, please apply or send your CV over today. For further information, contact Tom Stafford at G2 Legal now - 0207 649 9298.
