The team combines efficient legal support colleagues with trusted and experienced lawyers who together deliver outstanding client care across the full range of private client services.
The partners in the team are Legal 500 recommended and have deep sector knowledge in their areas of expertise such as Health, Social and Elderly Care, Trusts, Tax and Succession and Estate Planning, whilst the other lawyers in the team have many years’ experience in matters such as Wills, probate, Court of Protection applications, LPAs and EPAs and the management of general affairs for clients under the authority of Deputyship orders, etc. Our lawyers hold a number of professional memberships and accolades such as Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE), Society of Trusts and Estate Practitioners (STEP), ATT and CTA.
Within our caring, friendly and experienced private client team, you will feel supported in what you do whilst enjoying the autonomy to use your initiative and self-manage your working day.
As a Legal Support Assistant, you will assist the fee earners in the team by providing effective administrative and secretarial support using a case management system and a wide range of business software applications.
You will be expected to have contact with clients, both in person and by telephone and email, as well as with other law firms and related professional organisations and agencies.
You will assist in ensuring that the work of the Private client team is carried out in accordance with the firm’s own standards and you will endeavour to deliver a high quality, efficient and effective professional legal service by ensuring that documentation is prepared and produced to a consistently high standard within required deadlines.
Your role in the Private Client team is key so previous experience of working within the legal services profession, particularly in relation to Private Client work, would be a distinct advantage although not essential, providing you have enthusiasm and a willingness to learn and develop new skills with an interest in new technology and its application in an office environment.
