Private Client Partner
This top 100 firm has a different approach to the traditional private practice model. They have a fluid team structure allowing their partners to fee-earn, business develop and build their practice to its maximum potential.
The firm has experienced significant growth over the last 24 months and has experienced a 50+% increase in revenue since 2018. With consistent growth since 2013, now is the time to join this heavy-hitting, commercially minded giant of a law firm.
The firm is a full-service law firm but has particular expertise across Real Estate, Dispute Resolution, Corporate and Private Client work.
They have a brilliant ethos which sees the client's services by entire teams of Lawyers and Partners rather than individuals, and they believe that collaboration releases untapped potential in their people. Their culture is one of positivity, enthusiasm and focused around the people that work there. They nurture legal talent and provide a career structure which is based on merit, without the usual confusing application process and box-ticking exercise
They also have a good structure in which they separate the senior management team from the fee earners so that Solicitors can focus on technical law rather than finance and management.
There are no glass ceilings here at all, with no earning limits and pointless pay grades which reward on a level of experience rather than taking into account the individual and the value they add to the firm.
