About this role


Family Law

Legal 500

Our client is a highly respected multi-office tier 3 ranked Legal 500 firm, looking for a Senior Care Lawyer. You will be joining an incredibly well-respected family department that is seeking to appoint a passionate and driven. You will need to be a highly experienced Children Panel Accredited solicitor of at least 8 years PQE, with strong working relationships with CAFCASS guardians.

Our client is looking for a candidate who is technically excellent in children's law, who has a track record of acting in factually and legally complicated care proceedings, has an established reputation as an expert in public children's law and is an experienced advocate. The successful candidate will have good knowledge of LAA contract requirements, hold LAA supervisor status and be experienced in supervising others, along with being an experienced advocate.

Key Responsibilities

  • Running a caseload of predominately public law children cases, with some private law children and domestic abuse cases;
  • Undertaking advocacy on cases and, on occasions, for colleagues;
  • Keeping up to date with legal developments, particularly relating to children's law and sharing knowledge with the wider team;
  • Knowledge of LAA contract requirements;
  • Effective supervision of team members;
  • Meeting targets for time recording and billing;
  • Ensuring that all risk and compliance practices and procedures in the firm are adhered to along with professional conduct rules;
  • Proactively marketing yourself, the team and the wider firm.

This is a fantastic opportunity to not only join a prestigious Family Law team but, also join one which has a very favourable working environment, giving you the work-life balance often missed by many of the city firms.

A competitive salary is on offer alongside a strong bonus structure.

This is, of course, only one opportunity I am working on, I would be happy to detail both this as well as others over a brief, initial chat, alternatively reach out directly to Jamie Parsons

Search is an equal opportunities recruiter and we welcome applications from all suitably skilled or qualified applicants, regardless of their race, sex, disability, religion/beliefs, sexual orientation or age.
