About the role

The department's reputation is recognised by the Legal 500, with development set to continue as the team sees an ongoing increase in work. Typical matters that the Family Solicitor will deal with include divorce, financial provision, pre and post-nuptial agreements and separation agreements for predominantly high net worth individuals.

About the person

The Family Solicitor must be a UK qualified solicitor with a minimum of 2 years experience in practicing Family Law, however, this does not preclude candidates with more experience from applying for this role.
