You can make a real difference utilising your legal and interpersonal skills within a friendly and highly driven firm with a national reputation for excellence.
We are seeking another full time solicitor (2 + years PQE) to join our mental capacity team to work alongside Nicola Mackintosh QC (Hon) and our trainees undertaking complex and strategic casework in the Court of Protection.
