The practice operates a modern approach, offering the best IT solutions alongside practical flexible and hybrid working options.

The Role

This premium Top 100 UK law firm is seeking a private client solicitor to join its City of London team, at the Senior Associate level.

You will work as part of one of the most prestigious Private Wealth teams nationally - ranked tier 2 in the Legal 500. As a senior solicitor, you will gain access to one of the most enviable client lists in the UK.

You will find a varied caseload, making for much more of an interesting role. The ideal candidate will have experience handling tax matters, as this will be a component of the work required. There is no such thing as a typical client, the core profile of the firm's clients are wealthy families, often with a number of family trusts and grant-making charitable trusts.

Assets are likely to include shares in family-owned businesses, quoted investments, bespoke open-ended investment companies, hedge funds, landed estates and property.

The team also acts for business executives, entrepreneurs who have generated their own wealth, and families whose assets have accumulated over the generations.

The practice is known for having a substantial offshore, international aspect to the practice and ideally, you will have dealt with this type of work previously.

This is a role ideal for those seeking to consolidate their career in the realm of private client law. Working within a firm that is widely seen as the go-to-destination for HNW and UHNW clients - you will gain experience beyond your level of PQE.

You will receive tailored training and development from highly recognised Legal 500 lawyers. Joining as a Senior Associate will enable you to have an instant impact on the direction of the department, with solid prospects for progression to Partnership.
