A superb opportunity has arisen for a Knowledge Lawyer to join this Private Client Department ranked Tier 1 in the Legal 500.

Within such a well-reputed practice you will benefit from exposure to industry-leading Partners and the highest quality of work.

This position offers either an Associate/Senior Associate excellent opportunities for growth alongside exposure to quality work normally reserved for the largest City firms.

The Firm

In recent years, this Top 70 firm has substantially grown and now has over 400 staff. They are top tier across several practice areas, which increases yearly. They are based in the heart of the West End of London and deal with the same quality of work as much larger City firms without all the disadvantages associated with being a small cog in a big machine.

You will find that with smaller teams, it is common for NQ's and Partners to be working side by side, this is not a Partner-led, pyramid structure. Fee earners of all levels have the opportunity to be involved with business development. It is common for fee earners to gain such a level of exposure they gain PQE beyond their years.

It is common for lawyers from City-based and Top 50 firms to leave in favour of this very practice. This is due to the quality of working being the same but with the added benefits of greater flexibility and a more friendly environment.

You will find a creative, supportive, dynamic, forward-thinking, and progressive culture. They invest heavily in their staff, with industry-leading training and a real platform for progression.
