Two Experienced Family Paralegals are required for a specialist law firm based across Merseyside

Your new company
This is an expanding, highly-regarded, multi-practice law firm with offices across the Merseyside area. The firm have an excellent reputation across the North West, covering law in both personal and business settings, and have a highly specialised family law department with an excellent client base. The firm are recruiting for two family paralegals, to work in the firms' Woolton and Liverpool City Centre offices.

Your new role
These positions are based in Woolton and Liverpool City. As a family paralegal, you will assist fee earners and solicitors in the firm with their family caseload, whilst proving to be an excellent point of contact for new and existing clients. Alongside this, your typical roles and responsibilities would include, but not be limited to:

  • To work closely with partners and lawyers of the firm to handle family law cases.
  • To undertake research relating to family law in order to provide advice.
  • To prepare important legal bundles for court.
  • To build and maintain positive relationships with the firms clients.

What you'll need to succeed

This may be as a legal assistant or paralegal, and can be private practice or in-house. It is also essential that you have completed the LLB/GDL degree, receiving a minimum 2:1 grade. Having the LPC certificate would also be beneficial.

What you'll get in return
If successful in your application, you would gain experience in a highly specialised family law department in a well-regarded private practice. You would receive a competitive salary, which is negotiable based upon your previous experience, and the chance to eventually earn a training contract after some time. The firm have a competitive benefits package and a hybrid working model.
