Private Client Solicitor, Legal Executive, Wills, Estate Planning, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Probate, Permanent, Greenwich

Private Client Solicitor / Legal Executive is required for a friendly boutique firm of entrepreneurial lawyers who, a year ago, opened an office in Greenwich, London, with a second office in Bedfordshire.

Over the last 12 months, our Client has established a small Private Client department and are now looking for an Experienced Solicitor or Legal Executive to manage the department and build upon the excellent start they have made.

It is a great opportunity for the right person to develop a department of their own. Whilst you will have the support of the Managing Director and work closely with the Marketing Director there will be a large degree of autonomy to the role and you will be heavily involved in the decision-making process of how this department develops.

You should ideally have experience or an interest in business development, as we would like to maintain existing relationships and build new relationships with clients.

It is anticipated that further recruitment will be made to assist you as the department grows.

The role will suit somebody with an entrepreneurial flair, an ability to use their own initiative, with a highly developed commercial awareness.

You will undertake an array of duties to include:

  • Drafting of Wills and Codicils to include complex Wills
  • Estate Planning
  • Preparing Lasting Powers of Attorney
  • Drafting Deeds of Variation
  • Probate applications
  • Deputyship Applications to the Court of Protection
  • Inheritance Tax and succession planning
  • Trusts
  • A knowledge of family law would be an advantage but is not essential.
  • You would also be required to assist in writing content for the website and identifying ways of generating work.
  • A willingness to develop the business is a must alongside a real drive and energy to bring new work in.


In return, the firm offers a competitive salary and the chance for career progression within a supportive work environment where merit and achievement are rewarded. Flexible working is encouraged.
