Senior Private Client Solicitor sought to lead the private client team of this recognised commercial practice based in the centre of Leeds.

An opportunity has arisen within one of Leeds' most recognised commercial law firms. A private client solicitor is sought to enhance the practice area and lead the existing team in providing a range of services to both current and potential clients. The firm has been established for a number of years and was one of the first law firms in the country to achieve the legal quality standard, Lexcel. Over the years the firm has grown steadily to establish itself as one of the regions market leaders. Having won a number of awards over the years to include 'Law Firm of the Year' at the Yorkshire Legal Awards, the firm is now looking to strengthen its private client service offering.

Main duties will be to manage the existing private client team, devise and implement a business development strategy for the practice area, provide a breadth of private client advice on matters including estate administration, Wills, Lasting Powers of Attorney, codicils, trusts, probate & tax planning.

You will be a solicitor with at least 5 years' private client experience with the ability to handle the full remit of private client matters as well as having the ability to demonstrate a strategic focus. STEP qualification is an advantage but not essential. You will be a proven business developer with experience of dealing with high net worth clients. Ideally this will be coupled with previous experience of managing/supervising a small team.
