EXCLUSIVE: Work from home Contentious Private Client Solicitor - this is an unheard of opportunity brought to the market by a new law firm who have a clear purpose and are offering an unrivalled platform. The firm have invested incredibly into paperless and cloud based functions, allowing this position to be based purely from home only travelling to their office once or twice per month. The Director is an entrepreneurial individual and has a very successful business which has underwritten and backed this new law firm, meaning that although it is a new entity there is absolutely no worry over financial security and it's going to be a very exciting time of growth for them over the next 12-18 months.

The Firm

The firm is like no other I know, offering uncapped bonus to incentivise you to bill and so you can take control of your own earnings and of your future.

The firm is backed by a business that the Director owns and has underwritten this new law firm, meaning that financially they are incredibly stable as the business backing the firm turns over, over £3 million and employs over 40 staff.

This is an incredibly exciting time for them of growth, meaning there is genuine prospects above and beyond what's available right now - for the right people joining this business, equity for instance, is something that they want to put the right people on trajectory for.

The Role

The firm are currently seeking to hire a Private Client Solicitor to work from home, although it would be best to be based in the South West - Bristol, Exeter, Bath, Taunton, etc.

This is because they do require you (paid for by them) to go to their office in Exeter once or twice per month - however - for the right candidate, they may even set up a more local office or hot desk situation to bridge the gap, this is all up for discussion.

You will have an active caseload to go into, made up of powers of attorney and deputyships - HOWEVER - the Director is an avid business developer and whatever your specialism is, he will go out and win business in that sphere.

He wants someone entrepreneurial who will also work alongside him to build it up and treat this like their own business essentially.

Due to the nature of the existing work, it would be useful to be competent across contentious private client as well as non-contentious matters, so someone with an aspect of litigation to their current workload, or previous experience in would be of interest, however, if you don't have this please still apply as they may well still consider the application, if everything else is sounding good.

The role comes with uncapped commission/bonus - the firm want you to be able to earn well from the efforts which you put in.

There are exceptional opportunities to progress and increase your basic salary - it's all about the numbers and if you can justify a salary with your billings, this is a commercially minded business and will value that.

This, as such, is an opportunity to escape the 'traditional' private practice and become the master of your own destiny.


  • You will be a qualified Private Client Solicitor with probably 5 years PQE
  • You ideally would have an entrepreneurial personality/go getting attitude
  • You will ideally have good contentious experience, as well as non-contentious
  • You will have good technical credentials and a passion for private client work
  • Salary is VERY competitive and negotiable depending on your background, you will also receive an industry leading benefits package and uncapped bonus structure.

This is an excellent opportunity for a 5 PQE Private Client Solicitor to join an incredible business, working from home.
