Family Solicitor

Are you an experienced Family Solicitor or Partner looking for a new challenge at a standout Yorkshire firm? Then this role may be for you!

Our client is a vibrant and friendly practice and is one of Yorkshires top regional law firms. They act largely for business clients but have extremely well renowned private client and family teams that both support their commercial clients and bring work in on their own account. For this role they are looking for someone to be based in their North Yorkshire office, with the view to both supporting and getting support from their other offices across the region as and when required, giving you access to a wide and varied client base as well as a strong team of people to work with..

Working with private paying clients you will be dealing with a full spectrum of family matters including dealing with pre-nuptial agreements, divorce and separation matters, children matters and settlement of financial issues to name a few. You will get exposure to a high-quality caseload which will involve acting for high-net-worth individuals with significant assets.

It is essential that you have experience and therefore it’s likely that you will have an absolute minimum 5 yrs pqe, there isn’t an upper level and they are happy to consider people who are at partner level too. They have a strong presence within the market and an established office but are looking for someone who is happy to immerse themselves in the local market, working with the practice to grow and develop their high-quality family offer locally. They have realistic expectations and and there would be a lot of support in developing the work, whether that be from the team, colleagues within the local office or their extremely highly regarded business development manager.

The Family team are friendly and welcoming, so you'll have no problem fitting in. Whilst they work across a number of offices they are collaborative in their approach and naturally supportive of each other. They are a high preforming team, all extremely driven and motivated so this role would suit someone who is keen to succeed. They have a flexible approach and are happy to consider someone looking for either a part or full-time opportunity, equally they are happy for you to spend time in other offices of theirs across Yorkshire, including in Leeds, if that appeals. This role could be a fantastic opportunity for someone looking for an opportunity to shape something whilst being part of a vibrant team, or someone looking to step out of the shadows of a mentor or superior.

Given the breadth of levels at which they can recruit it’s tricky to be specific about the exact salary, although they do pay appropriately for a commercial firm which bodes well for family lawyers who may be at either niche of more general practice firms. They also have a full benefits package and will be supportive in every way of your development.
