Family Solicitor - HNW Client Base - Excellent Culture

A top tier Chambers rated, Legal 500 listed practice is looking to strengthen its family client offering with the appointment of an experienced Family Solicitor to be based at the firms' headquarters in Birmingham city centre and deal with a high calibre caseload of family matters.

This firm has a very strong national presence although it does make a particular effort to maintain its very strong regional links within the West Midlands to ensure that it never loses touch with its local client base. Consequently, the practice is highly thought of within the Birmingham market, regularly dealing with high value, quality matters and the firm has forged long standing relationships with a variety of clients due to it consistently providing an exceptional level of client care. The firm itself is very highly regarded within its specialist sectors such as local government, social housing and social care, family, private client and charities.

The firm is keen to speak with an experienced Family Solicitor or Legal Executive who has a minimum of 5 years' PQE and who has experience of dealing with the full remit of privately funded family matters, so you will need to be well versed in dealing with divorce, civil partnership dissolution, financial settlements, cohabitation agreements, and arrangements for children. In this role you will have exposure to a HNW client base so y ou will not just simply deal with relatively straight forward matters as the majority of work will comprise complex subject matter such as dealing with high value and complicated financial structures.

In addition, you will act as a technical referral point to more junior members of the team and you will be enthusiastic about business development, especially as you will be a senior member of the team and will be required to participate in seminars and presentations, so there is massive scope for progression for someone with an appetite for growing the firm's family offering. This is not limited to being an office based role and there will be an abundance of opportunities for face to face client engagement both within and out of the office.

This a fantastic opportunity to become an integral part of a team at a leading firm which will provide exposure to quality matters in a collegiate environment and which offers a clear career development route which is particularly pertinent given the close proximity in which you will work with one of the partners in the team.

The firm is offering a competitive salary and benefits package which includes 25 days a year holiday and you will also benefit from working for a practice which truly values its staff and provides continuous investment in professional development in an exceptionally supportive environment. This is a role that all but guarantees progression in the medium term and will provide you with a solid platform to really push on and take your career to the next level, so for more information on this Family Solicitor / Legal Executive role please contact Matt Robinson at QED Legal.
