About the role and team

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a senior Matrimonial Lawyer, we suggest around 6-10 years PQE, to join our highly reputable team and carry out privately funded matrimonial work (both children and finances), as well as cohabitation agreements and pre and post nups.  The successful candidate will also be required to support junior colleagues on legal aid matters.  As well as being responsible for handling work that comes into the team, the successful candidate will also be expected to network and bring in further work themselves. 

Our current team consist of two Partners, a Senior Associate, Solicitor and a Chartered Legal Executive.  We also have support of a Trainee/Legal Assistant if needed.  We very much have a team approach to work, sharing of work knowledge and skills.  Being a small part of the wider private client team, there will be an expectation to support our colleagues across the team.

About the candidate
The ideal candidate will be a strong private matrimonial fee earner, with exceptional client care skills and an aptitude for business development and networking. Experience of advocacy in court is essential, as there will be an expectation to get involved in court work themselves. They will also have strong networks with the ability to bring in further work to the team. Being a keen team player, the successful candidate will thrive in working for the team as a collective, as well as being able to use their own initiative. Experience of line management and supervision as well as the desire to assist and develop junior members of the team would be beneficial.
