About the role
An exciting opportunity has come up to work closely with highly-regarded Family Law Partners as a Senior Lawyer. The role covers the full gamut of family law work which includes helping individuals protect their assets in a relationship as well as navigate through complex separations and dealing with relationship disputes (care of children, domestic violence and other related matters). Being a specialist in family law at a firm that is leading the charge in this practice area, you will have all the support you need to develop your practice in the local community, allowing you the freedom to promote your personal brand to attract new clients to the firm. Since there is a good balance of being able to work autonomously on files while having the support of other experienced partners at the firm, this would be an excellent role to consider if you are thinking of a change.
About you
  • 4+ years PQE experience in family law gained in a specialist family law practice or within a family law team at a general practice;
  • Experience with family law disputes and attending to defence hearings would be of interest;
  • Sound drafting skills (e.g. Contracting Out Agreements and other related RP agreements); and
  • Ambitious character and excellent communication skills.
Perhaps you are at a senior level and are looking for more autonomy in your day-to-day work, or perhaps you'd like more diversity in your workload to develop your overall skills in family law. Either way, get in touch to find out more about this position.
