Junior Duty Solicitor.
 
This Legal 500 recommended firm has several offices across London and is looking to recruit into their well-established Criminal team.
 
The firm is Lexcel accredited and handle all manners of criminal cases from general and serious criminal matters, such as motoring offences, assault and murder, through to business crime cases (fraud and money laundering).
 
Due to the team's ongoing development, the firm is looking for a Junior Duty Solicitor to join and help build the team at their North West London office.
 
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 is looking for NQ - 3 years' PQE.

If you are an NQ without the Duty Accreditation but willing to get accredited, then you are encouraged to apply. 
 
This is a highly attractive opportunity for an ambitious and self-motivated Duty Solicitor, keen to work on a busy caseload and seeking long-term progression in Criminal Defence law. Knowledge of local courts would be beneficial but is not a pre-requisite for the role.
