They are distinguished as the type of firm lawyers from US, Silver, and Magic Circle law firms are drawn to, as evidenced by recent hires.
The Firm
This law firm deals with the same quality of work as much larger firms, without the disadvantages associated with being a small cog in a big machine.
You will find a creative, supportive, dynamic, forward-thinking, and progressive culture. They invest heavily in their staff with industry-leading training offering a clear-cut platform for progression.
Ultimately, they are a place for professionals who can provide quality in everything that they do, but who also enjoy their lives away from work.
Given the profile of the firm and the target hours you need to achieve to get your bonus (1300 hours PA) you will find there is a good work-life balance with the flexibility you may not expect at this level.

The firm is seeking a Private Client (Probate-Focused) Associate (2-4 years' PQE) to join their office in London.
It's a rare opportunity as the team does not regularly recruit externally, and those who are part of the team love it there, so don't tend to leave. This role has arisen due to growth.

  • This role will solely focus on probate matters. As such you should be handling a caseload of at least 70% probate matters to be suitable for this opportunity.
  • You will work alongside the three senior associates, one junior associate, and probate manager, who together comprise this Tier 1-ranked team.


  • Private Client Associate, England & Wales Qualified 2-4 PQE
  • Experience of administering estates: You should be able to run a simple administration without much assistance (However, practical support from the probate manager and secretaries is available, and the senior associates and partners will always make time to provide assistance and guidance!)
  • Excellent verbal and written communication
  • Excellent level of numeracy

In short, this is an excellent opportunity for a 2-4 PQE Probate Solicitor to join a leading firm based in London.
