  • £65000 - £80000 per annum
  • Huddersfield, West Yorkshire
  • Permanent

One of our well established and award winning leading commercial law firm clients is looking for an ambitious and driven Private Client solicitor with at least 6 years pqe but up to and including partner level, to join their firm and make their mark in their Huddersfield team!

You will be joining a Legal 500 firm who represent national and international clients that put their trust in them, many of whom are very entrepreneurial. They have worked hard to establish a strong reputation for delivering clear and pragmatic legal advice by investing time in getting to thoroughly know their client's businesses and complement this with their strong private client team who can offer joined up support for their personal finances too.

Winning awards across multiple divisions they have continued to excel and are rapidly becoming a major force within the Yorkshire market allowing the practice to grow and reach new heights each year.

Not only do they show that extra bit of care to their clients, but they heavily invest in their people too, creating a supportive and friendly atmosphere where the spirit of cooperation and integrity drives everything they do. There is plenty of scope for personal development and progress within the company with a team of extremely dedicated and passionate solicitors all working to deliver first class service to every single one of their clients.

The firm take a sensible approach to billable hours with a moderate target of 1000 billable hours a year; however, they don't typically refer to personal targets but work on a team basis. There is a constant stream of work sources which will allow the successful candidate to develop their skills in a range of topics within the private client sector. There is also opportunity to take part in business development if it appeals but this is not a necessity.

To be the successful candidate for this you will have experience of 6+ PQE and will have confidence and great communication skills that will help you whether working with their commercially savvy clients or when networking and marketing the firm. You will need to be able to build strong, long-term relationships with the clients and help drive the growth of the firm by representing them in how you work. The role will offer access to a high-quality work as well as offering you the opportunity to assist more junior solicitors with their own caseloads. It will focus you on dealing with HNW matters for clients with an entrepreneurial approach and undertaking a variety of tasks like drafting wills, powers of attorney's, trusts, estate management and tax planning.

This is truly an exciting role offering with a fantastic opportunity for a solicitor who has the experience under their belt to develop and progress further, taking on a strategic role within a well-established team and firm.
