You need to enjoy and embrace technology - their product is unique, and we feel this is a firm to watch whose offering is ahead of the curve in the market.

  • You will have broad and exceptional family law experience in all areas
  • You will have excellent interpersonal skills
  • You will be confident in a managerial position - this comes down to the individual more than previous experience, although this would be beneficial

  • Excellent progression prospects and a key position within the firm
