Court of Protection Solicitor / Legal Executive
A renowned top tier full service national law firm is looking to recruit a Court of Protection Solicitor or Legal Executive to join its Specialist Court of Protection Team which is based at the firms' office in Birmingham city centre.
This is an outstanding opportunity to join a firm that is immensely proud of having a transparent and collaborative culture throughout the entire organisation. The firm is very much a meritocracy and does not operate a traditional pyramid structure. Any attitudes of self-importance are most certainly frowned upon which is no doubt why the firm is the recipient of a number of awards including being ranked as one of the best law firms to work for.
The Court of Protection Team is held in exceptionally high regard and deals with the full remit of Court of Protection work, especially that which has a particular emphasis on an individuals' financial affairs and in particular those who are on a sound financial footing.
Working closely with experienced Court of Protection specialists, you will be tasked with handling your own challenging caseload of a variety of Court of Protection matters to include applications for the appointments of Deputies, Statutory Will Applications and the administration of financial affairs for those who are lacking the relevant capacity. This will be achieved by liaising with a variety of bodies such as financial advisors, case managers and working closely with the firms' Litigation Team.
You will either be an NQ or have up to 2 years' PQE in dealing with either Court of Protection and/or Private Client matters. Equally, the firm is happy to hear from fully or part qualified Legal Executives with the requisite experience to meet the demands of the role.
A competitive salary and a comprehensive benefits package is on offer which includes 25 days' holiday with the option to buy more days, private health care, life assurance and an abundance of corporate discounts.
This is a great opportunity for those whose career is in its infancy and who want to gain experience at a top tier firm that can offer exposure to quality work. The firm actively encourages professional development and you will quickly enhance your skill set meaning that you can progress swiftly, perhaps into a supervisory role or onto dealing with more technically challenging matters.
