Private Client Partner - No Following Required

A very well respected leading regional practice is continuing with the expansion of its award-winning Private Client Team and so is now seeking to appoint an additional Private Client Solicitor at Partner level to be predominantly based at the firms' Kidderminster office.

This highly regarded firm has a solid rating within the Legal 500 and has a number of offices spread throughout Telford, the West Midlands, Shropshire and Worcestershire. With a headcount in excess of 200, the firm provides bespoke legal services across all disciplines to individuals, commercial entities and the farming community alike.

The Private Client Division is the firms' largest offering so it will come as no surprise that the team has a very strong reputation in the market and is able to boast a significant client base which includes HNW individuals, owner-managed businesses, those holding professional positions and also clients within the agriculture sector.

In order to build on the firms' continuing success, the practice is inviting applications from experienced private client solicitors to join the partnership as part of the firms' initiative to considerably expand its Private Client offering within the West Midlands. You will ideally have at least 8 years' PQE and will have experience in dealing with tax, trusts and wealth protection initiatives on behalf of high net worth and ultra-high net worth families and individuals. There is also no requirement for a following or a part-following to secure this position; however, any clients that might port over with you will of course be looked upon favourably.

This opportunity differentiates itself from others in that the partners here work as an aligned group and the philosophy is very much that clients come first with management coming a distant second and politics being absolutely left by the way side. The firm operates a relatively flat structure with the philosophy being to allow its partners to demonstrate their individual skills and talent without fear of them being shackled, which you might be experiencing in your current role.

This is the perfect opportunity for a partner who is keen to secure a fresh challenge and join a practice that can offer a different and innovative way of working. Equally, the firm is eager to hear from senior associates who have worked at high calibre firms and are keen on taking the step up to partner level by demonstrating their technical expertise and their appetite for business development. Either way, this role will provide you with the freedom and autonomy to grow your practice area and allow you to really make your mark in the West Midlands private client sector.

The remuneration package on offer is excellent and the firm is offering one of the best benefits packages on the market. You will also be able to benefit from the firms' standing in the marketing when growing your department and you will have the benefit of working in one of the most open, supportive and collaborative environments around.

Roles like this are a rarity; you will have the chance to join one of the strongest Private Wealth Teams in the region and further strengthen the private client offering without the need to have a tangible following to attain a senior role. Quite simply this role will be career defining for the right person and allow you to forge a solid reputation within the private client sector.
