Due to the relocation of a senior member of the team, we are seeking a motivated succession practitioner to lead our wills & estates team and drive the practice going forward.  The ideal applicant will require extensive experience in all aspects of succession law. Experience with trusts and trusts disputes is desirable.  Excellent supervisory and mentoring skills are a must, as this position will assist in recruiting a Solicitor for the team.

This is an excellent opportunity for a senior practitioner to walk into an established practice and leverage off that to take the team to the next level. 

Lastly, the successful candidate will be joining a collegiate team environment where all staff are valued for their contribution. In recognition of this, all full-time employees enjoy every second Friday afternoon off. We believe this displays our progressive approach and is indicative of the culture we promote.
