The Firm

This customer-centric law firm is widely recognised for its excellence in service. With offices across Essex and East Anglia, this leading regional firm offers comprehensive legal solutions to businesses and individuals locally and nationally.

The Legal 500 ranks many of its departments as top-tier, having developed specialist teams in agriculture and estates, commercial property, corporate law, employment, family and private client, to name a few.

Beyond professional achievements, you'll find a warm, inclusive culture where collaboration and support flourish. The firm understands the importance of a healthy work-life balance and offers hybrid and flexible working arrangements.

The Role

The role will see you joining a highly-regarded law firm deeply rooted in the rich landscape of Essex and East Anglia. The agriculture and estates team has been dedicated to supporting agricultural businesses of all sizes for many years, making a significant impact on the region's farming community.

You will work closely with farmers, landowners, and agri-businesses on a broad caseload, collaborating with our private client and property teams on succession planning, fishing rights, farm partnerships, conveyancing, agricultural tenancies, renewable schemes, financing, and more.

This role offers real career prospects. The firm can provide a safe and secure platform for you to progress and excel alongside their close-knit and collegiate roster of like-minded individuals.

The Ideal Candidate:

  • You will be a qualified solicitor with at least 3 years PQE
  • You will have experience in practising agricultural law and have a genuine interest in the rural way of life

Remuneration & Benefits:

  • Salary is competitive, negotiable and dependent on experience
  • Excellent benefits package including private healthcare and 30 days holiday
  • Regular team and firm-wide social events
  • Opportunity to work alongside leading figures
  • Structured and supported career progression

If you are excited by the prospect of making a meaningful impact in the agricultural sector, and if you resonate with the description above, we are eager to hear from you.
