Job Description

Multi office regional firm is looking for a Private Client Solicitor 2PQE+ to join the Private Client team in the York office.

This is a fantastic opportunity for an ambitious Solicitor to develop their career in a growing firm with genuine long term opportunities for development. The busy Private Client team specialises in wills, LPA, estates, trusts and tax advice. Certain members of the Private Client Team also specialise in charity law and, in conjunction with others, contentious probate.

The successful candidate will handle a varied caseload to include LPAs, will instructions and preparation, administration of estates, trusts and tax, whilst providing our clients with high quality advice. Though based mainly from the York office, you may also be required to work from other offices from time to time. You will be expected to ensure that all business targets relating to service, quality and productivity are being met.

They particularly envisage developing Court of Protection/Lasting Power of Attorney work. The successful applicant will be asked to prepare a programme by which this can be achieved. As this is partially a developmental role, the successful applicant should show an aptitude for marketing, to include seminar style talks. You will be expected to take an active role in networking and business development and to generate new clients and contacts as well as maintaining current relationships.

To be successful in this role, you will need:

  • 2+ years PQE
  • Sound knowledge of all usual private client areas
  • Proven track record of business development and meeting clients face-to-face
  • Confident communication skills with clients and potential clients

Ability to manage own workflows and meet and exceed deadlines and targets

Whilst not essential, a wider skill base than pure private client issues is desirable

They offer a competitive salary and benefits package - which includes 25 days holiday a year and a company pension. They provide a fully supportive background to your Continuous Professional Development within a friendly team environment. The firm is in a superb location in the heart of beautiful York and offers a great work/life balance

Lipson Lloyd Jones Ltd is acting as an Employment Agency in relation to this vacancy. Please note our advertisements use PQE levels purely as a guide to the minimum level of experience required. However we are happy to consider applications from all candidates who are able to demonstrate the skills necessary to fulfill this kind of work.
