They are committed to delivering the highest level of service and delivering outstanding client care with exemplary client service, they pride themselves on supporting people in reaching their full potential and nurturing truly talented individuals, and are now seeking to recruit a capable and outgoing Solicitor as a fundamental hire in the development of a highly regarded and expert Family Law Team.

They are the only top 20 law firm in the UK with a market leading national Family Team that acts for private clients in all aspects of family law, including pre and post nuptial agreements; cases with a business and/or international aspect; children law and cohabitation.

This is a superb opportunity to develop your skills within a highly established and innovative department and to work alongside leading solicitors and experts on a stimulating mix of high quality privately-funded cases. They are looking for a qualified Solicitor with NQ - 4 years PQE experience in family law starting as soon as practical. Ideally you will have significant experience of more than your years and for example, working as a paralegal in family law pre qualification would be ideal.

It is essential that you possess rounded client service skills and you must be able to empathise with a wide range of clients in order to resolve the most sensitive and complicated practicalities involved in family break-ups. Of particular importance will be organisational and communication skills. The successful candidate will be committed to team work, and crucially have a proven track record in business development and networking to help in developing and building a successful Family Law Team at the top of the market in the City.

If you thrive on being busy and can adapt well to new challenges, then they'll give you all the training and support you'll need to help you succeed in this highly rewarding role.

However we are happy to consider applications from all candidates who are able to demonstrate the skills necessary to fulfill this kind of work.
