This role makes for an incredible opportunity for an experienced Solicitor looking to join a modern, progressive new set up in the Bristol area. The firm is looking for an innovative and entrepreneurial Solicitor to join and take over as Head of Practice, alongside usual fee earning responsibilities. This unique position will provide you with all the responsibility and benefit of running your own practice, without any of the risk relating to insurance and liability. This is also a fantastic flexible opportunity currently on the market.
The business was founded based on a model which is led by insight directly from existing businesses. The firm held discussions with business owners, leaders and CEOs about what they didn't like about how legal services were delivered.
Responses were consistent - and so are their results.
The firm you'll be running is a 'local leader' in the community and specialises in conveyancing. What you'll find is a quality team of legal professionals who put the client's needs first, and a key focus on business development and networking in the local community.

This may sound daunting to some; however, the systems and infrastructure in place, coupled with unlimited access to advice from the Director (an ex-managing partner of a top 100 firm) make this a much easier step toward running a firm than going it alone - their consultancy and leadership will be highly valuable.
